Wrington, Redhill and stops along the A38 are served by the A2 bus service which runs between Weston and Bristol Airport, although users will be aware that the bus no longer serves Long Lane. The bus is routed from Langford, through Wrington along Silver Street and Havyatt Road to the A38 and then on to Redhill, where access to the bus stops has been improved. This bus operates hourly through the day, Monday to Saturday. Unfortunately, there is no service on Sundays or Bank Holidays. There is no longer a bus service direct to Bristol with passengers needing to change at the airport and use the Bristol Airport Flyer. Timetable details for the A2 are available here.
The Flyer offers a 24 hour service between the airport and the city centre, with departures every 8 minutes in peak periods and a journey time of around 30 minutes. See here for details.
Bristol Airport offers a concessionary fare scheme for local residents using the Flyer to travel in and out of Bristol. For further information on this, and a scheme under which people living in or close to Downside Road can park at the airport free for up to 20 minutes, see here.
Of course, various commercial and charter flight operators offer air travel to many destinations through Bristol Airport, which is readily accessible to local residents and businesses. For information on travel and transport to and from the airport see the Bristol Airport website or here.
