Hi All,

Have to get to Bristol Airport from Temple Meads at around 9.00am next Wednesday.

I Know the Bristol Flyer is not running but the A2 is, what I cant find on First Bus maps is the city center stops.

Does the A2 call into the station? and where is the previous pick up stop just in case the Bus Stop has many passengers waiting.

Many Thanks

« Reply #1 on: July 05, 2020, 09:43:55 am » - 1st July 2020 . My bolding, change as from today.

First West of England is making changes to its A2 service (Broadmead - Bristol Airport) for the benefit of customers who need to travel to Bristol Airport. This comes as the Government confirms that holidaymakers will soon be able to travel abroad, with an announcement on the selected air bridges to some European countries expected to follow in the next few days.

From Sunday 5th July, additional early and late journeys will run on A2 service to accommodate customers who need to travel to and from the airport at these times. The A2 route has stops in the City Centre and Bedminster, and will now also serve Bristol Temple Meads Station, to improve access to this service for customers and provide connections to the railway.

Hi Grahame,

Thanks, if I had seen your poll on Buses then 3 and 6 are my main concerns about this Trip.

I am planning to arrive an extra Hour earlier than normal just to be able to get on a bus, plan B having to take a Taxi if I cant get on.
