Parts of the Wye Valley Walk are well served by public transport, particularly the lower sections where there are more towns and villages. It is possible to walk some stretches and use buses to return to your start point.
There are railway stations at Chepstow (the start of the walk), at Hereford and at Builth Road in Powys.

Transport from the end of the walk
The walk ends at quite a remote location that is not served by buses. There are three options. It is possible to continue the walk on the Severn Way 8 miles (12.8km) to Llanidloes, which is well served by buses, including to the railway station at Newtown. Otherwise it is necessary to retrace your steps to Llangurig which again is on a main bus route. Some walkers use a taxi service from the end point at Rhyd y Benwch to return them to a suitable location that is better served by public transport.
