MetroBus: Bus Rapid Transit (BRT)

Metrobus is a new, modern public transport service for the greater Bristol area.

Metrobus offers faster, more frequent and more reliable services with direct routes to key destinations. It uses new, modern, environmentally-friendly vehicles with USB sockets and free Wi-Fi. The buses have an extra pair of doors to speed up getting on and off.

It's also a ‘buy before you board service’ with ticket machines at every stop, for quicker journeys.

MetroBus is part of the West of England’s plan to:

  • reduce carbon emissions
  • support sustainable economic growth
  • promote accessibility
  • contribute to better safety, security and health
  • improve quality of life and create a healthy natural environment
  • improvements to rail via MetroWest

MetroBus has been designed to link and connect with existing rail and bus services. It builds on the £80 million investment in the Greater Bristol Bus Network and is part of an integrated approach to travel investment that includes:

  • passenger transport improvements (MetroBus and new bus links)
  • measures to improve cycling and walking
  • traffic and parking management
  • improvements to rail via MetroWest
