South Glos Council is consulting on an option to change the 84 and 86 bus service to provide a more frequent and reliable service.
- The 84 would operate an hourly circular route in an anti-clockwise direction (Wotton Charfield Cromhall Wickwar Chipping Sodbury Yate Chipping Sodbury Horton Hawkesbury Upton Hillesley Alderley Wotton)
- There would be a new 85 service operating an hourly circular route as above but in a clockwise direction.
- The 86 service would operate between Yate and Longwell Green, going via Coalpit Heath, Greenacres Park, Kingswood and New Cheltenham on an hourly basis (currently 2 hourly).
School journeys will still be provided, although times may alter slightly.
The changes mean that people to the North of Yate wanting to travel to Emersons Green, Mangotsfield, or Kingswood would need to change at Yate bus Station.
