Cllr Elfan Ap Rees, North Somerset Council’s deputy leader and executive member responsible for transport, said: “We have worked closely with Bristol Airport to secure a public transport service for rural villages in the area. This service provides an opportunity for local communities to connect with both a major transport interchange and also access the employment opportunities that Bristol Airport offers.”
Paul Baker, Surface Access Manager at Bristol Airport added: “We are delighted to see the introduction of this new bus service for the local area, another positive step in improving surface access to Bristol Airport which is a key feature of our emerging Master Plan. This new bus route will help to connect local villages as well as offering a great interchange opportunity at the airport for onward journeys.”
Carolyn Alderton from Carmel Bristol said: “We are pleased to be able to provide this vital service, connecting the airport with local towns and villages.”
