City continue First Bus partnership

Bristol City Football Club is delighted to announce it has extended its partnership with First Bus into the 2017/18 season – offering supporters transport options across the city on matchdays.

Building on the bus services from previous seasons, First Bus will again be running its four dedicated services for football and rugby supporters during the forthcoming campaign – which begins on Saturday when Barnsley visit BS3 in the Sky Bet Championship.

Three services will run on football matchdays, from the Portway (AG1), Brislington (AG2) and South Bristol (AG4).

Ashton Gate managing director Mark Kelly said: “The routes proved extremely popular last season because they were developed in conjunction with First Bus and supporter groups to enhance travel and also to ease congestion in key parts of the city.

“We hope supporters will take full advantage of these subsidised services again in the season ahead.”

First Bus commercial manager Simon Ford said: “We’re delighted to continue this partnership that was originally established in 2014 with Bristol Rugby to offer fans more choice of travel on matchdays.

“The services include routes from the Portway Park & Ride (football and rugby); Brislington Park & Ride (football), North Bristol (rugby) and South Bristol (football) to allow fans to travel to and from the stadium, with a number of stops on the way.

“We hope supporters will again embrace the routes, which should make their matchday travel cheaper, more efficient and more environmentally friendly to the city.”

Supporters can purchase the Bristol Inner Zone Day Ticket for £4 return (adult), or £3 for a single (one-way) journey. Concessionary passes may be used. Two children may travel free of charge with a fare paying adult. Additional children will be charged £3 single or £4 return. Please note: No student discount is available and no other tickets are valid for travel.
