A FREE coach service offering a relaxing commute for city workers has been launched.
More than 400 people have signed up to the new service, which will take workers from Portishead to Bristol each day.
The 49-seat coaches will have air conditioning, power sockets, refreshments, toilets and free wi-fi.
Four coaches will leave Portishead each morning, and will take people to large employers such as Aztec West, Rolls Royce, Royal Mail, Airbus and the Ministry of Defence. There will also be a pick-up point in Clevedon.
North Somerset Council joined forces with The Kings Ferry to launch the scheme.
