Wrington, Redhill and stops along the A38 are now served by the A5 community bus service which links villages in the area with Bristol Airport. This bus also goes to and from Yatton via Stock Lane and Congresbury, connecting with the X1 and other buses on the A370 as well as Yatton Station.
Unfortunately, there is no longer a bus service direct to Weston or Bristol from Wrington, with another option for passengers to change at the airport and use the Airport Flyer, the A1. 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. It should be possible to catch the SW Falcon bus from Redhill and stops along the A38 to go direct to Bristol. See here for details of this 24/7 bus service. The A3 service now connects the airport with Weston, using Downside Rd, Brockley Combe and the A370. The timetable is available here.
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.
