New X5 and 88 timetables published

First have released the new timetable for the X5, which will apply from 11th January. It will no longer serve Kenn, Yatton or Congresbury but is extended beyond Cribbs Causeway to Bristol Parkway Station and UWE Frenchay Campus.

See the new X5 timetable here.

Carmel 88 also has a new timetable, from 12th January. See it here. It is extended beyond Clevedon to Yatton, replacing that part of the current X5. It will stop right outside Yatton Railway Station, giving Portishead's bus users a new way to connect with the rail network.

Christmas & New Year service levels

First have released details of their Christmas and New Year services serving Portishead. See them in full here.

On Boxing Day and New Year's Day, only a skeleton service will run on certain routes. For us, that means a bus every 2 hours on the X2, with no other buses running. Here's the timetable that will be in operation:

X5 to Bristol Parkway / 88 extends to Yatton

There are some changes to the 88 and X5 from 11th January. Details from North Somerset Council here.

The main changes for Portishead are that First X5 will run via the M5 beyond Clevedon, making it quicker to get to Weston-super-Mare. Some journeys are also extended beyond Cribbs Causeway to Bristol Parkway railway station.

Carmel 88 is being extended beyond Clevedon to Yatton to replace the diverted X5.

I'll post the new timetables here as soon as they have been published.
