A ‘Bus information roadshow’ is to be held following controversial changes to services in Thornbury.

The event comes after Thornbury Town Council held meetings with South Gloucestershire Council transport department and the bus operators to look at issues raised by residents.

At a Town Council meeting on Tuesday, July 31 councillors acknowledged the introduction of the new T1 and T2 services in May had been ‘poor’.

Members of the public at the meeting claimed residents were not clear where buses stopped and the council agreed communication needed to be ‘radically improved’.

Residents previously complained about changes to timetables for buses going to SGS College in Filton.

The roadshow will be held in the St Mary Centre from 10am-4pm on Thursday, August 30.

At the roadshow, there will be information about all bus routes available and representatives from First Bus, Stagecoach and South Gloucestershire Council will be available to discuss routes and share feedback.

Representatives will also be there to answer questions about the changes starting the following weekend on September 2. This includes Stagecoach revisions to Service 77 - a simpler route around Thornbury and new links to UWE, as well as the existing direct links to Bristol Parkway and Southmead Hospital.

There will also be changes made to the new routes as a result of customer feedback including additional stops on Morton Way and improved maps and communication about routes available.

Councillor Shirley Holloway, Chair of Thornbury Town Council said: “The Town Council is pleased to welcome an increased sharing of information about bus services available for our residents.”
