HPC Travel

All the information you need to know if you're travelling to watch City Women play at the Robins High Performance Centre. 

The best way to get to the Robins High Performance Centre on match days is on our matchday special bus service ‘HPC1’.

The service will operate for all first-team league games played at the HPC. HPC1 will not operate for fixtures at Ashton Gate and cup games may vary – check website ahead of the game.

Subsidised tickets will cost as little as £1.80 per person and are valid across the Bristol Zone network so you can connect to other First Bus services without paying extra.


  • Buses will depart from The Haymarket at 1350 and 1430 for a 3pm kick-off
  • Buses will call at St Augustine’s Parade approximately 1353 and 1433 and Ashton Bridge approximately 1400 and 1440
  • For games kicking off at 12pm please deduct three hours from the above timings (eg - the first bus would depart The Haymarket at 1050)
  • Journey time to the HPC is approximately 15 minutes subject to traffic


  • Buses will depart from Robins HPC car park
  • The first bus will leave approximately ten minutes after the full-time whistle once most fans have left the stadium
  • A second bus will depart approximately 30 minutes later
  • The Ashton Bridge stop on the return journey will be at Blackmoors Lane stop in Bower Ashton, just the other side of the A370. Fans can use crossing points and subways to cross
