Greater Bristol Bus Network

The Greater Bristol Bus Network consisted of a significant investment in 10 corridors across the Greater Bristol area to deliver substantial improvements in the quality of bus services. There are two corridors in North Somerset: Weston-super-Mare to Bristol and Portishead to Bristol. Improvements along these routes included enhancing bus stops, real-time information (RTI), new and improved buses and further bus priority measures.

Real time information

Real time information (RTI) systems display live bus departures at certain bus stops and online to help you see when your next bus is due. Find out more on the TravelWest website. Find out when your next bus is due.

If you experience a problem with RTI in North Somerset we can deal with the problem quickly if you let us know the bus stop name, bus service number, the direction the bus is travelling in, and the time and date. Contact our public transport team.
