The new A5 bus service, which will connect the North Somerset villages of Wrington and Langford to Bristol Airport, was launched today.
A second route from Langford will also benefit villagers living in Winscombe and Yatton Railway Station passengers, as it will provide additional public transport links to and from Bristol Airport.
Carmel Bristol has been commissioned to run the new service Mondays to Fridays, excluding public holidays, which is set to replace the current A2 service operated by First West of England.
Paul Baker, surface access manager at Bristol Airport, welcomed the service’s creation and believes it will prove very useful.
He said: “We are delighted to see the introduction of this new bus service for the local area,
“This new bus route will help to connect local villages as well as offering a great interchange opportunity at the airport.”
