Bristol Bus & Coach Station
Bristol Bus and Coach Station serves the city of Bristol in the west of England. It is situated at Marlborough Street, near the Broadmead shopping area. It was opened in 1958 by the Bristol Omnibus Company, and redeveloped in 2006.
Before 1958 Bristol had no bus station; most country and long distance coach services departed from Prince Street, and others used street stops in the Centre, Canon’s Road and Old Market.
The station is managed by First West of England. There are 19 bays, bays 1 to 7 for National Express services, bay 8 for the A1 ‘Flyer’ service to Bristol Airport and bays 9 to 19 for local bus services operated by First West of England, ABus, and Stagecoach West. The bus station has a First Travel Shop that deal with information and ticket sales for First bus services and National Express coach services, a National Express Information Desk, a Pumpkin Café Shop, a Point newsagents, a security office, and toilets.
The bus station is used by the Bristol Airport Flyer service to Bristol Airport (Service A1), most First West of England limited stop and country services, and National Express services. The bus station is also the departure point of the X7 Severn Express service to Chepstow and Newport.
