Electric Bus traveling down Gloucester Road, Bristol

Description

** While coronavirus poses a risk to public health, our advice on using public transport may be different to usual. Please visit the Travelwest website for up-to-date information about managing risk while travelling**

A single person travelling by car will produce over four times as much CO2 as someone travelling by rail, and almost twice as much as someone travelling by bus.

Buses and trains produce fewer emissions and reduce congestion on our busy city roads. You’re also free to do some reading, message friends or catch up on your favourite TV series or YouTuber.

We know that not everyone in Bristol can easily catch a bus or train. We are exploring ways to make this easier and for travel to be more reliable in all areas of the city. The more people use the busses and trains, the better services will become. For info on what transport options are available to you, please use the travel planner on the Travelwest website.
