Passengers using city coach link up by 22 per cent
Bristol International’s ‘Flyer’ express coach service carried 440,000 passengers between the airport and Bristol city centre in 2007 – a 22 per cent increase on the previous year. The rise in the number of people using the Flyer outstripped overall passenger growth at Bristol International (3.1 per cent), and keeps the airport on track to meet its objective of significantly decreasing the proportion of passenger journeys made by car.
Travelling on the Flyer is set to become even easier later this month when an online booking facility launches on the airport’s web site (www.bristolairport.co.uk). This follows recent service improvements, including a route extension to include student halls of residence in Clifton, additional early morning departures (02:30 and 3:45) from Marlborough Street Bus and Coach Station, a late night departure from Bristol International (00:45), and a real time information display installed on the terminal forecourt.
Alan Davies, Director of Planning and Development at Bristol International Airport said:
“By continuing to enhance the Flyer service, we aim to further increase the proportion of passengers using public transport to and from the airport, reducing the emissions generated by surface journeys and preventing congestion on Bristol’s roads."
“We are on track to carry more than half a million passengers on the Flyer in 2008.”
