For the 12 months to the end of March 2019, First Bus West of England made a total of 5.4 million in profit - an annual figure that jumped almost seven times from the previous year.

Back then, in 2017-18, the local First Bus company made 800,000 in profit.

The profit figures equate to the firm making more than 100,000 a week clean profit, or almost 15,000 a day.

The company acknowledged that the jump in turnover, and the subsequent leap in profits, was largely down to an increase in passengers.

The bus company has effectively put on roughly the same number of buses as before, but now they are more full of passengers.
