The Court enjoys a very convenient location for those who prefer not to drive very much as it is an easy walk into Cowbridge town - about 10 minutes or just one stop on the bus.  The bus is useful for the return up the slight hill especially when carrying shopping.  

At the entrance from Cardiff Road are the bus stops for the X2  Porthcawl/Cardiff service calling at Bridgend, Culverhouse Cross and Cardiff Bay.  In addition there is the NAT Service between Llantwit Major and Talbot Green with an extension through the Vale villages into Cardiff.
The Green Links Community bus is used by many residents of the Court for local journeys within the Vale including the principal hospitals of Bridgend and Cardiff.
