exactly its great I'm just on way to Plymouth to see a uni mate left at 4:45 get there 8 ish and I'll get the bus back at 12 tomorrow. All for £1 surprised this hasn't got more heat. as well as under 25's always getting returns less than £5. also all the coaches are brand new with WiFi, toilet and wall sockets with comfy seats..
Was just thinking about this. Could possibly be because the driver would go over their driving limit. Which I think is 4 hours. as longest journey 3hr 40 so 20 mins to allow for traffic.
brilliant service, you can have an evening out in bristol and get back the same night instead of having to book Hotels, Hope people support this service
Was looking at this after booking a couple of holidays flying from Bristol. The route is along the A38/M5 to keep journey times down but the nearest stops for me are at the Exeter park and rides off the M5. So I'd still need to drive to catch this service and the park and rides don't appear to allow overnight parking (never mind how much it would cost to park there compared to airport) so no good when off on one's jollies. My flights are too early in the morning to be able to use the 2 buses I'd need to catch to get to this service as none of the normal local services run 24/7 like this one! So easiest option for me is still to drive to airport and pay around £30 per week. Which makes this service only significantly cheaper if going on holiday for more than a week anyway when there's two of us travelling. May use it for a day out in Plymouth or Bristol if it stacks up well to the train, especially while the tickets are on offer at a quid.
I've been waiting for this for years, finally a good connection to Bristol airport and all those cheap flights but why is it not routed through torbay one of the biggest urban areas of the Westcountry? Think of all the business they are missing out on!!! Graham
