Where it goes

The North Fringe to Hengrove MetroBus route will provide frequent services from Hengrove to the City Centre, the University of the West of England (UWE), the Science Park, Cribbs Causeway and Emersons Green. The route uses a new bus-only junction on the M32 to bypass congestion and offer faster and more reliable journeys to and from UWE and the North Fringe.
