m1 metrobus service

HCT group, which operates the m1 metrobus service, has informed us that, regrettably, it will be unable to operate the service after Friday 2nd September. The future of the service, however, has been secured and operations will be transferred to First Bus, which will start operating the service from Monday 5th September to a slightly revised timetable.

We ask that passengers be aware that there may be disruptions to some late evening journeys on Friday 2nd September and that there will be no service on Saturday 3rd or Sunday 4th September due to the transfer of staff and buses.

The bus operator HCT group (operating as ‘Bristol Community Transport’) also operates bus services 52, 53, 54, 55, 62, 505, 506, 511, 515 and 516 across the Combined Authority area and North Somerset. The group has informed us, that regrettably, it will be unable to operate those services after Friday 2nd September.

The West of England Combined Authority is currently working hard to try and secure an alternative operator for these services however from the 3rd September these services will cease operating.
