A new express bus service for the West of England

The m3 links Emersons Green, Lyde Green Park & Ride, Bristol and Bath Science Park, UWE Frenchay campus, Cabot Circus and the city centre.

First bus from Lyde Green Park & Ride:

  • 6:00 Monday to Saturday

Last bus from The Centre (Stop C2) to Lyde Green:

  • 21:05 Monday – Saturday
The stops have an iPoint, a unique on-street information totem where you can buy your ticket before boarding the bus. If you use a Travelcard to buy your tickets you can top it up at an iPoint.
They also display live bus arrival times and information about onward journeys and other bus services from the stop.

The buses are designed to be accessible for all passengers with spacious entrances and exits, low floors and wide corridors. The seats also have more legroom than a normal bus.

The twin doors on the buses make it quicker and easier for people to get on and off, especially those with reduced mobility and parents with pushchairs. This speeds up journey times by minimising the time our buses spend at each stops.

Buses also have free on-board Wi-Fi and USB charging facilities
