Travel Around Cardiff

 
 

 

Train

 

If you travel to Uni from home, then getting a rail card is a great decision. The city’s largest station is Cardiff Central which is in the heart of the city. There are linked train stations located at Cathays, Queen Street, and Llandaff that are within a short bus journey distance of campuses. If you choose to have a Santander student bank account, you will get a free 16-25 student rail card.

Next Bike

 

We really recommend using the NextBike as it allows you to hire out bikes from lots of locations around Cardiff with the first 30 minutes of cycling free for students.

A green, healthy way of getting to and from campus and around the city that is cheap and fun to use.

Dragon Taxis

 

Safe Taxi Scheme - Exclusive to your Students’ Union is the Dragon Taxi’s Safe Taxi Scheme. Dragon Taxis have agreed with Cardiff Met SU that students can make emergency bookings on an account if required.

Learn more about protection for students with Dragon Taxi’s. 

Walk

 

Cardiff is a small enough city that you can reach most places on foot and walking is a great way to explore your new home, as well as helping you stay healthy. Both of our campuses are within 20 minutes of the student communities/districts such as Roath, Cathays and Llandaff. There are some beautiful walking routes to campus through the Taff Trail, Bute Park, Roath Park, Pontcanna Fields and Llandaff Fields which are worth exploring during your time at Cardiff Met.
