A new service connecting Weston with shops at Bristol’s Cribbs Causeway mall officially launched this week.

The Crosville Flyer, operated by Crosville Motor Services, was named as the new operator of the award-winning commuter service between Weston and employment areas in North Bristol last month, and will also stop at points in Clevedon and Portishead.

The route will allow residents to reach sites including Aztec West, Rolls Royce, Airbus and the Ministry of Defence, and begun on Monday when Crosville took over the previous Monday-to-Friday contract from Kings Ferry.

Crosville managing director Jon Jones-Pratt joined North Somerset Council’s Elfan Ap Rees, whose portfolio includes the district’s transport services, to officially open the service this week.

All services will run on newly-furbished coaches, including USB charging points at each seat and free wi-fi for all passengers.
