History
Opened 1958

Bristol Bus and Coach Station serves the city of Bristol in the west of England. It is situated at Marlborough Street, near the Broadmead shopping area. It was opened in 1958 by the Bristol Omnibus Company, and redeveloped in 2006.

Before 1958 Bristol had no bus station; most country and long distance coach services departed from Prince Street, and others used street stops in the Centre, Canon's Road and Old Market.[1]

The station is managed by First Somerset & Avon. There are 19 bays. The station has a First Travel Shop, National Express Coaches shop, National Express information desk, Pumpkin Café, Amigo News, a security office and toilets.

The bus station is used by the Bristol Airport Flyer service to Bristol Airport (route A1), most First Somerset & Avon limited stop and country services and National Express services. The bus station is also used by the Severn Express service to Chepstow and Newport, and is operated by First Somerset & Avon.
