Thanks for the message , apologies for the delay in replying.  I asked the question of my colleague who deal with the transport, parking etc at Ashton Gate and here's the reply.


As you may be aware First Bus operate these services with a subsidy from the club. Unfortunately First Bus were keen not to operate the service which had not made a profit on any game for over two and a half-years before the Covid-19 pandemic and at one league game in 2019 took just £17 of revenue.


Following the Covid-19 pandemic First Bus have had numerous pressures finding the vehicles and staff to operate matchday bus services and opted to consolidate the services by continuing to operate the AG1 Portway Park & Ride service and AG2 Brislington Park & Ride service as well as a new AG3 service from Temple Meads, Broadmead and the city centre. The AG3 is designed to connect people from across Bristol who can use the public bus network to travel into the centre where they can join the AG3 to Ashton Gate without paying for additional tickets – the route connects with the maximum number of public bus services possible. Unfortunately it’s not possible to operate matchday bus services from all neighbourhoods across the city.


The matchday bus services remain under constant review and all feedback is considered when planning future services.


Cheers Jerry
