Bus changes from 1 November 2015

Following a review of the service changes made on 23 August in the Nailsea area First West of England and North Somerset Council have listened to comments and suggestions from our customers. Whilst the changes to the Nailsea network are, for most people,  overwhelmingly positive, we are seeking to respond to comments with a number of minor adjustments.

From 1 November 2015 changes will be made to the A2, X8 and X9, key benefits will include:

  • Nailsea school journeys- service A2 retimed to allow for school journeys to and from Tickenham and Nailsea school.
  • Additional journeys provided between Clevedon and Nailsea.
  • The route of the service X9 will be modified to change the direction of travel on Hazelbury Road, reinstate the Silver Street section of route, and add further frequency enhancement on Queens Road and Stockway South.
  • More direct link between Long Ashton and Nailsea School.

In addition to these changes Carmel Bristol will also be operating new journeys between Nailsea, Clevedon and Portishead on service 88.
