New metrobus service launched this weekend
The CPME (Cribbs Patchway MetroBus Extension) team have announced the start of the new m4 service which serves The Mall, Stoke Gifford, Parkway, UWE & Bristol City Centre. They say: 'This new bus service will operate between The Mall and Bristol City Centre, via Stoke Gifford, Bristol Parkway Station and UWE Frenchay.
It will serve communities in Patchway and Stoke Gifford. It will also eventually serve the new Bristol Arena and Brabazon development on the former Filton Airfield.
The m4 service will:
▪ run between 6am and 11.25pm on weekdays, with a later start and earlier finish at weekends.
▪ run approximately every 20 minutes on Monday to Saturday, and every 30 minutes on Sundays and Bank Holidays.
The service will run along the Cribbs Patchway metrobus extension (CPME), which has been a £57 million investment to reduce congestion and improve journey times for all road users by providing a new quick, reliable public transport system.
The m4 service starts this Sunday, 22 January.
The service is being operated by First Bus on behalf of the West of England Combined Authority, the Transport Authority.
