New Bus Service to Bristol Airport
Created: 19th Oct 2018
A new bus service to south Bristol will commence from Sunday 28 October 2018, further enhancing public transport connections to Bristol Airport.
The new service is being introduced to coincide with the rerouting of the A1 Bristol Airport Flyer service to take advantage of new Metrobus infrastructure in Bristol. The A2 will operate between Bristol Airport and Bristol city centre (Lewins Mead) via Bedminster every half hour between 3.30am and midnight. This provides passengers and staff living near the existing Flyer route in south Bristol with continued access to public transport to and from the Airport.
The A1’s new route will follow the A38 from the Airport to Lime Kiln roundabout where it will join the South Bristol Link before turning onto the dedicated guideway to Long Ashton Park and Ride. From here it will continue along the Metrobus route to Bristol city centre via stops including the ss Great Britain – a popular destination for visitors to the city. Flyer buses – which have been adapted to use the guided bus rails along the Metrobus route - will continue to operate every ten minutes at peak times, with the reliability of journey times expected to be significantly improved as a result.
Paul Baker, Surface Access Strategy Manager, Bristol Airport said:
“We are delighted by this latest enhancement to public transport services to and from Bristol Airport. The new Flyer route will provide a better experience for our passengers, while the significant number of staff living in south Bristol will continue to be served by a regular bus to and from work.”
