About Briteway

Become an early adopter

The Briteway app is currently in beta (an early release, ready to be used and tested by train travellers in Wales).

It’s being created by Briteyellow for Transport for Wales and this first iteration can be used in six train stations: Cardiff Central, Cardiff Queen Street, Newport, Pontypridd, Chester and Shrewsbury. As we add more stations, we can improve the app based on your feedback and insights, helping thousands more people feel confident about travelling by train.

Briteway is funded by The Design Age Institute
