SusCom - Bus Study


In July 2012, North Bristol SusCom, with support from South Gloucestershire Council, commissioned a bus study. 

The main objectives of the study were to: 

  • Assemble a comprehensive inventory of current staff transport services, including company provided, contracted operations and public bus services (this will need to be represented on a GIS map)
  • Assemble a comprehensive map of employee home locations across SusCom and Bus Group Member organisations (Note - anonymised postcode data will be provided by North Bristol SusCom). 
  • Identify costs bourne by employers in funding or operating these services, management arrangements and any contractual issues.
  • Understand the demand for staff travel, in terms of quantum, times of travel and origins/destinations, considering not only current movements but also employers’ aspirations and future developments.
  • Investigate options to improve the effectiveness of travel services, including outline costings.

We received the final report in September 2012 and are working on the recommendations and expect a new bus service to start in January 2013.
