A LUXURY coach service offering free wifi and refreshments to commuters has proven to be very popular.

More than 400 people have signed up to a new commuter coach service, which has been set up by the council and a leading coach operator.

North Somerset Council has joined forces with The Kings Ferry to launch the luxury travel service, which will travel from North Somerset and end at an employment centre in north Bristol.

The brand new, 49-seat coaches will have air conditioning, power sockets, refreshments, toilets and free wifi, so passengers can relax to and from work.

Four coaches will leave Weston each morning, and will take travellers to large employers such as Aztec West, Rolls Royce, Royal Mail, Airbus and the Ministry of Defence. Eight coaches will leave Bristol each evening.
