Further changes to bus routes serving Southmead Hospital
Published on: 01 Jul 2016
CHANGES to bus services from Emersons Green to Southmead Hospital and beyond will be introduced from July 24.
Operator First is reducing the frequency of the 18 service from Emersons Green to Henbury to hourly but is bringing in a new 18A to Avonmouth, meaning that buses are running on the main part of the route every half an hour on weekdays.
The Monday to Friday route has also been extended to include Lyde Green and the Bristol & Bath Science Park.
First is cancelling the X18 service from Kingswood to Southmead Hospital so travellers from that area will have to use other buses such as the 17 or 17A, or take the 86 to Emersons Green to pick up the 18 or 18A.
Other service diversions and timetable changes will be made to accomodate the one-way closure of Stoke Lane over the coming months so it’s best to check before you set off.
