Bristol Community Transport begins bus services

Posted: 03 Sep 2017

We have begun operation of four bus routes in the Bristol area, under a contract with Bristol City Council.

Route 505 runs from Long Ashton Park and Ride to Southmead Hospital

Route 506 runs from Broadmead to Southmead Hospital.

Both routes, which operate with brand new single deck vehicles, are designed to better connect the hospital with the community.

Route 511 runs from Bedminster to Hengrove.

Route 512 runs from Broadmead to Bedminster.

These two routes, which operate on brand new, smaller minibus-style vehicles, aim to connect less well served parts of the city.

“I am delighted that we have the opportunity to provide these services to the people of Bristol” said Jimmy Sommerville, General manager at Bristol Community Transport. “These bus services will not only help the people they serve to get out and about, but the they also help us to sustain our community work in the city.”     

All four routes are run under the Bristol Community Transport banner and formally operated by CT Plus, our group’s main trading arm.
