Last Friday's Bristol Post carried a stark headline ...
And what of the existing stops (above left)? They will be removed and be sited elsewhere.
Will they share the Metrobus layby? Or will they be even further away from the station; say at "New Shelter" on Victoria Street?
Will this scheme merely more the congestion to somewhere else? That is what usually happens.
First Bus, and, encouragingly, the Bristol Post want to see some more imaginative and far reaching solutions to Bristol's horrendous traffic problems.
Oh, yes, fbb nearly forgot. The Metrobus "network" was chosen as cheaper than a tram system and; look what that money bought for the Bristolians.
A pathetic, potty, pricey and pointless partly guided busway Park and Ride and an expensive buses only motorway junction which is banned to all but a few of the buses that might wish to use it.
Metrobus may be cheaper than a tram, but value for money it certainly isn't.
But partly hidden to the parts of the media (and to outside observers?) is another dramatic change to public transport in Bristol which took place last Sunday, 11th November.
