More South Gloucestershire residents are to benefit from direct bus services to Southmead Hospital.

Starting from Sunday 23 August, service changes agreed between South Gloucestershire Council and local bus operators will provide a greater number of residents with a direct bus service to Southmead Hospital.

We have been proactively working with local bus operators to look for opportunities to make it easier for residents to have the option to travel by bus rather than taking the car. Areas that will now have access to a direct service to Southmead Hospital under the new changes include; Easter Compton, Hanham Common, Patchway, Pilning, Severn Beach and Thornbury.

Mark King, Head of StreetCare and Transport, said: “The number of bus services within South Gloucestershire have increased which is fantastic. We now have more direct services to Southmead Hospital than ever before and it is good to see the direct services as an option for some of our rural villages too.”
