A new Metrobus service has started this week.

The m2 began operating on Monday and will run from Mondays to Saturdays, leaving the Long Ashton Park & Ride and transporting passengers into the centre of Bristol.

It will run every 10 minutes during peak times and every 12 minutes during off-peak periods, while there will be three buses per hour after 7pm.

On Saturdays the service will operate every 12 minutes from 10am-6pm.

The m2 follows the launch of the MetroWest m3 service which has seen more than 120,000 passengers use it since it launched in May.

James Freeman, managing director at First West of England, said: “Metrobus is proving to be a public transport success story, with take up of the first route exceeding our expectations.

“We predict the second route will be equally popular given it will be attractive to both visitors to the city and employees looking to access the city centre quickly and cost effectively.”
