Emersons Green to City Centre

Operated by First West of England

The m3 metrobus operates from Emersons Green and calls at Lyde Green Park and Ride, Bristol & Bath Science Park, Emerald Park Industrial Estate, the University of the West of England (UWE), Cabot Circus and the city centre.

The m3x is an express commuter service serving the City Centre from Lyde Green Park and Ride. It does NOT call at the university.

The first bus to depart Lyde Green Park and Ride:

  • 06:00 Monday- Saturday ; 08:55 Sunday m3
  • 06:45 Monday- Friday m3x

The last bus to depart Bristol City Centre (C2)

  • 21:05 Monday – Saturday ; 18:40 Sunday m3
  • 18:20 Monday – Friday. m3x

The service uses the new bus-only junction on the M32 to travel directly to and from UWE. The new junction which was built for metrobus means services bypass Junction 1 and Filton Road which are often congested during peak travel times.

The m3 also uses new and improved bus lanes across the city that were built for metrobus, including the recently extended bus lane on the M32 and the new bus lanes in the city centre.

All links open in a new window.
