MetroBus is a £200 million investment in a new express, high quality public transport network with faster and more reliable journey times.
The MetroBus network is three interlinked b us routes: Ashton Vale to Temple Meads, the North Fringe to Hengrove Package and the South Bristol Link.
MetroBus will help employees travel to work and provide businesses with greater access to a larger pool of potential employees and customers.
South Bristol Link was granted planning permission before Christmas and local and regional business support was key to its success.
“The support for the link was described as ‘unprecedented’ by the planning committee and ensured that businesses needs were integral to the debate. We have a lot to thank the businesses for,” said Paul Wilson, chief executive of the WE LEP.
