Changes to Yate and Chipping Sodbury Night Bus service

The Yate and Chipping Sodbury Night Bus service changes from next week, 24 April. Previously the N47 bus ran three times a night from Bristol City Centre (0015, 0155 and 0335) in the early hours of Saturday and Sunday mornings.

The new 47A service will only run twice on each of those evenings (0131 and 0331) from Bristol City Centre, Broad Quay, but it will now call at Bristol Bus Station. It will no longer do the "North Yate Loop" as First Bus think this is uneconomic.

The town and parish councils have tried to persuade First Bus to run the third service, but they're just not interested, and no other company submitted anything like an affordable tender.

You can see full details of the timetable and a map of the new route here on the First Group website.
