In light of the planned further easing of Covid-19 lockdown measures, local bus operator First West of England has announced that it will be altering the timetables of some of its services from Sunday (11th April 2021).
The changes will affect the M1 MetroBus and no. 73 services which run through Bradley Stoke.
The new timetables are similar to those which were in operation prior to the last changes made on Sunday 24th January 2021, when services were altered to reflect reduced customer demand during ‘Lockdown 3’.

From Monday to Friday during the day, the frequency of the Metrobus M1 service will be increased to ‘every 10 minutes’, from ‘every 12 minutes’.

The previous additional Monday to Friday journeys between Bristol Temple Meads and Bristol Parkway are being reinstated, meaning that the frequency on this section of the route will be ‘every 15 minutes’.
The frequency of journeys which traverse the complete no. 73 route between Bristol Temple Meads and Cribbs Causeway, via Bradley Stoke, will remain at ‘every 30 minutes’.
Frequencies on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays will remain unchanged.
