We have been lobbied hard by businesses and residents to improve the public transport in Bristol and across the West of England. We're now working with neighbouring councils to develop a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) network.
The Network will be a high quality experience with modern vehicles. It will be reliable, easy to use and in places have its own right of way.
The Rapid Transit Network (pdf, 4.3 MB) (opens new window) forms part of the West of England's overall aim to:
- reduce carbon emissions,
- support sustainable economic growth,
- promote accessibility,
- contribute to better safety, security and health,
- improve quality of life and a healthy natural environment.
For more information about the MetroBus and the current review on the TravelWest website.
Part of a wider transport programme for the West of England
The Rapid Transit Network will link with existing and future bus and rail services, forming part of a wider transport programme (pdf, 5.1 MB) (opens new window) that's reliable, affordable, easy to use and available to all.
The three Rapid Transit routes
Ashton Vale to Temple Meads and Bristol City Centre
This route will provide frequent services from Long Ashton Park and Ride to Bristol Temple Meads and the city centre.
North Fringe to Hengrove
This route will link Cribbs Causeway, Aztec West and Emersons Green with Bristol city centre and Hengrove in the south of Bristol. Read about the planning application for this route.
South Bristol Link
This route connects the Ashton Vale to Temple Meads service from Long Ashton Park and Ride to the new hospital and leisure centre in Hengrove. Read about the planning application for this route.
