Help a tourist get from Cardiff, Wales to Pontycymmer (Pontycymmr) and back.

I have three days in Cardiff coming up. The day in the middle I have nothing to do. I do, however have to be back in Cardiff for 9pm that night. I'd like to visit Pontycymmer for the day.

I will be arriving in Cardiff via train from London. I will be staying each night in Cardiff in a hotel.

I am open to ALL ideas on how to get to Pontycymmer and back. taxi? rent a car? bus? anything. i need ideas. Please be specific as possible.

Thanks so much!

Bus or train to Bridgend, then bus to Pontycymmer. The train from Cardiff is a lot faster than the bus, and the train station's a very short walk from the bus station.

(And the 12 and 14 buses from Bridgend go to Pontycymmer.)

holgate's got you sorted. That's the way to do it.

Here's another site that you might find useful, though: Traveline Cymru. It's a straightforward public transport planner for all of Wales.

fakelvis's deserves a best, because Traveline Cymru shows a faster all-bus option to Bridgend than the ones I linked: the 100 Cardiff-Swansea route [pdf], which doesn't stop as often. For that, you change at the Odeon near the M4.
