A number of bus services that cover Bradley Stoke and neighbouring areas will see changes from Sunday 2nd April 2023, with some being improved while others are having their routes trimmed or being transferred to a different operator.

Funding from the West of England Combined Authority (Weca) is helping to provide increased frequency on First’s popular T1 service, while at the same time some under-used services such as Stagecoach’s 10 & 11 are having their routes shortened and will no longer pass through Bradley Stoke.

Service T1

Thornbury to Bristol city centre via Bradley Stoke and Harry Stoke.

As a result of funding provided by the Weca and North Somerset Council’s successful Bus Service Improvement Plan award, the frequencies on this service will be improved. During Monday – Friday daytimes, buses will run every 20 minutes (currently half-hourly). The Monday – Saturday evening service will increase from hourly to half-hourly.

The service will also be extended to once again serve The Centre in Bristol city centre, rather than terminating at Bristol Bus Station. However, it is important to note that buses will take the direct route along The Haymarket and not pass the Bristol Royal Infirmary as they did prior to the last route change made in October 2022.

Editor’s note: The T1 service is favoured over the M1 MetroBus for journeys between Bradley Stoke and Bristol city centre as it achieves shorter journey times by joining the M32 at Junction 1 rather than going into the UWE Frenchay campus and joining the M32 at Stapleton.

Services 10 & 11

* No longer serving Bradley Stoke *

Changes to the routes of Stagecoach services 10 and 11 mean they will no longer pass through Bradley Stoke, resulting in a loss of direct connections to Southmead Hospital, Avonmouth and Thornbury.

Service 10 will principally run between Avonmouth, Lawrence Weston and Southmead Hospital, with just a few journeys extending to Bristol Parkway, while service 11 will run between Avonmouth, Shirehampton and Southmead Hospital.

Editor’s note: First’s T1 service (see above) offers an alternative option for travel to and from Thornbury, albeit from stops on Bradley Stoke Way rather than Brook Way. Those wishing to travel to Southmead Hospital are advised to use a journey planner, such as the Travelwest Journey Planner, to find possible options.
