CityFox to run Bristol route

Bristol residents will be able to get out and about by bus for the first time ever on Christmas Day 2016, thanks to a new route being operated by Snowdonia Travel, part of the CityFox Group.

Route 60, operated by CityFox Group's recently acquired subsidiary Snowdonia Travel but branded in the blue and silver CityFox corporate colours, will connect the City Centre with South Bristol Hospital on an hourly frequency on 25/‪26 December.

The route incorporates Totterdown, Knowle and Whitchurch, providing parts of the south city with access to public transport at times when buses have not previously been available.

As well as welcoming concessionary holders for free travel, other customers will be able to pay for their travel using debit and credit cards, contactless, Apple Pay, as well as cash.

Says CityFox Group MD Rhys Hand: "A key part of the philosophy that drives our growth is the desire to innovate and explore new opportunities.

"As a Bristol-based business, we are proud to be serving our local community with links at a time of year when people want to be able to see friends and family but may previously have been stuck at home.

"We hope that our service will particularly appeal to hospital staff and visitors, as well as anyone who wants to be able to celebrate the season with a festive tipple, knowing they can get home safely.”
