Satisfactory

ProBetter than walking! Cheaper than taxis

ConsInfrequent, not good value for money

I used city line buses before I got my car 9 months ago. Now I really appreciate having a car - especially with 2 under 5's. The buses are cramped, hardly any moving space to get on or off, are usually full, not of old age pensioners going home after a day's shopping, but young to middle aged...

“Pity our City”

published 11/01/2001

ProNew night buses are good

ConsUnreliable

FirstCity Line is the primary bus operator within the City of Bristol and its surrounding area. There is virtually no competition for service in Bristol, despite the de-regulation that took place some years ago, enabling much greater opportunity for companies to compete for, and provide service...

“THE BLACK BUS OF CALCUTTA”

published 15/05/2003

ProI will get there.....eventually

ConsDirty, smelly, filthy, rude drivers, etc

*UPDATE AGAIN* Nearly a year on and I'm out in the community working. And has it improved, shamefaced to say not. I think I managed my longest bus journey a while back, I was on the bus stop at 8.15 for a 25 minute journey and got into the centre of Bristol at 9.40. I am also currently demanding...

“The Rattler”

published 23/05/2001

Proit gets you home

Consendless

It’s 5.15pm and you have just finished work in the centre of Bristol. You managed to get a lift into work this morning because your car is in the garage with ‘clutch problems’. You wait at the bus stop in silence for the number 51 bus or as its more commonly known ‘the rattler’. Glancing around...

“On and Off the Buses”

published 06/03/2001

ProGood Website

ConsTerrible, unreliable service

When I first came to Bristol last October, the paper was full of horror stories about the buses. Why, I thought. Granted I had only used the 8/9 which travel around central Bristol but there didn't seem to be any problems. How naive. My girlfriend was the first to experience problems when she had...

“First Bristol”

published 29/10/2005

Proextensive network

Consvery exspensive, unrelyable around peak hours

I feel i should start this article by saying that the bus company in bristol is no longer cityline, it is now first as it is in many other parts of the country. i also feel that bristol buses often get an unnessisarily negative review. The bus network in bristol is good, and generaly buses in...
