73 or X73 : What’s the Difference?

Bus at the Willow Brook CentreThe 73 operates seven days a week between Cribbs Causeway (serving The Mall) and Bristol city centre. In Bradley Stoke it makes a loop around Woodlands Lane, Trench Lane and Bowsland Way before travelling south along Brook Way. After reaching Manor Farm Roundabout,  it visits the Willow Brook Centre before continuing south down Bradley Stoke Way and making a loop around Webbs Wood Road and Baileys Court Road. After passing through Stoke Gifford, it proceeds along Filton Avenue and Gloucester Road into the city centre.

The X73 is a peak hour “express” service Monday-Friday that follows a similar route to the 73, however, it travels the full length of Brook Way and does not visit the Willow Brook Centre or Webbs Wood Road/Baileys Court Road. After passing through Stoke Gifford it takes the M32 motorway into the city centre(instead of using Filton Avenue and Gloucester Road
