Destination Hengrove: It's finally happened! The 515 has started – an hourly daytime (Mon-Sat) service from Stockwood serving the new hospital at Hengrove (not to mention the Leisure Centre, the Skills Academy, and the shops at Whitchurch and at Imperial Park. From the hospital, it's also a short walk to the 'destination' playpark and the cinema. The newly contracted service is run by Wessex, so First's Dayrider tickets won't be valid (a fine illustration of how competition provides a public good!), but it's good news anyway. The time table's here.
Family First Day SouthWest for a tenner: Through the summer holidays, First Bus are offering a familyticket for up to 5 people (max 2 adults) on all their off-peak services in SouthWest England for a mere ten pounds.
