Passenger pressure ensures changes to new bus routes
Changes have had to be made to Thornbury’s new 77 bus route, provided by Stagecoach West, before the company’s official launch of its new services.
Service 77 is the route across Thornbury which replaces the former service 615. It will run every hour between Thornbury and Bristol City Centre, connecting Aztec West, Bristol Parkway Station, UWE and Southmead Hospital. It’s one of the additional routes being added as part of Stagecoach West’s expansion of services in North Bristol and South Gloucestershire, which aim to provide new links between the villages and Thornbury, Yate and Bristol.
But residents and passengers were unhappy about the manoeuvres that the bus has to make at Manor Walk to turnaround, as well as navigating some of the narrower roads within the town.
