Unfortunately, there are no bus services direct to Bristol from Wrington so passengers need to get to other villages to make onward connections. Route 51 and 51s connect Wrington to Weston-super-Mare via Langford, Churchill, Winscombe, Banwell and Haywood Village. More information on route 51 & 51s can be found on Firstbus’ website.
WESTlink is an on-demand minibus service that started in April 2023. It allows residents to book their bus journeys through an app, website, or phone. It forms part of the largest on-demand bus scheme in the UK and aims to reconnect communities by offering people currently without a local service the opportunity to get back on the bus. Further information of WESTlink can be found here.
For journeys to Bristol, one option is to change at the airport and use the A1 Airport Flyer. It should be possible to catch the SW Falcon bus from Redhill and stops along the A38 to go direct to Bristol.
The A3 service connects the airport with Weston, using Downside Rd, Brockley Combe and the A370. You can find further details of bus and coach services to Bristol Airport on their website.
If you live near the A38 the U2 (introduced by Bristol University and First Bus) is open to the public and runs on an hourly basis down the A38 from the veterinary school in Langford to the University campus on Queens Road, Monday-Friday, 8.00am-6.00pm (the full U2 timetable is available on the First’s website).
Bristol Airport offers two concessionary schemes for local residents. Information on a subsidised fare scheme on the A1 and A3 Flyer Express services and a scheme under which people living in or close to Downside Road can park at the airport free for up to 40 minutes, can be found on the airport’s website.
