  • Service extension to Central Park and Western Approach

  • Shirehampton and Lawrence Weston no longer directly served


With effect from Monday 15th May the SevernNet Flyer will be operating to a new timetable with a number of changes to the route.

 

The SevernNet Flyer was established as a pilot service (as part of the SevernNet Working Coastal Community Fund initiative) and has been running since January 2016. The funding for this pilot service comes to an end in July 2017.

 

A decision has been taken by South Gloucestershire Council (who commission the service from Wessex Bus) to amend the route in these last couple of months of funded service. This will enable a service extension to Central Park and Western Approach Industrial Park in the north of our area and shorten the journey time from Avonmouth to Cabot Park.

 

This service extension provides access to a new area. To accommodate this, the SevernNet Flyer will only be picking up (in residential areas) at Avonmouth Station and Avonmouth Village. Passengers from Shirehampton or Lawrence Weston will no longer be directly served.

SevernNet and other stakeholders are working with local employers to develop an employer led service to replace this pilot service later in the summer. More news is expected in the coming weeks.

We welcome your views and feedback on the impact of any changes and on the future of the SevernNet Flyer. We are also keen to hear from employers with a concern about the options available to employees to get to work across the area.
