Supporters information: First Bus matchday travel

A new ticket pricing structure will be in place on all First Bus operated services in Bristol from Sunday 23rd January onwards.

This includes the club subsidised matchday services (AG1, AG2 and AG3), meaning fans can continue to link journeys made on the public bus network with our matchday services.

The changes include:

  • On bus and mTickets will cost the same, however fans are strongly urged to pre-purchase mTickets as this significantly improves the loading speed – enabling us to move more fans more quickly. All matchday services will remain cashless with card payments only accepted on bus
  • All single tickets have decreased in price
  • A new ‘2-Trip’ ticket can be used on any two First operated buses in a given day. It can be used as a return but does not need to be the same service. The 2-Trip ticket is cheaper than the existing First Day fares
  • Day tickets and Group tickets have increased slightly however will remain the best value for many. Day tickets allow unlimited journeys, multiple changes and travel on different services. Group tickets allow up to five people to travel together on multiple journeys from as little as £2.12 per person

All matchday services provide regular dedicated services to Ashton Gate. The AG1 and AG2 provide free parking and the AG3 is perfect for anyone living in Bristol or entering the city via Temple Meads, the Coach Station or driving through central Bristol (use city centre car parks).

With increasingly regular services and stops at the stadium, they avoid the hassle of matchday traffic or parking. Full details of the price changes can be seen here: New Tickets, More Choice | Bristol, Bath and the West | First Bus, while maps and timetables for matchdays can be viewed at available at www.bristolbearsrugby.com/travel/ .

First Bus are also making a number of changes to the public bus network across Bristol from 30th January - including a new 23 service from the city centre to Ashton Vale and changes to the 24 service which passes Ashton Gate. Full details can be seen at Bristol & the surrounding area service changes from 30 January 2022 | Bristol, Bath and the West | First Bus.
