MetroBus is a rapid public transport system. It is designed to quickly transport large numbers of passengers by using a combination of segregated busways and bus lanes. MetroBus will be connected to the traffic light system to ensure a fast, reliable, express service between 94 strategically placed stops. It’s a smarter way of travelling that will speed up journey times, relieve congestion and reduce levels of pollution.
The MetroBus network will provide direct routes to key destinations, enabling thousands of people to access employment, education and leisure opportunities from densely populated areas.
The new MetroBus network will use high quality, hybrid drive, single deck vehicles, with fast boarding thanks to smartcards. The high spec stops will be clean and bright, with real time information displays as standard.
MetroBus is part of the Travelwest investment by Bath and North East Somerset, Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire councils in local public transport.
