A2 bus service

The former 121 service from Weston-super-Mare to Bristol, operated commercially by First, has been combined with the council-supported service A2 Link, launched as part of the DfT’s Local Sustainable Transport Fund.


The new A2 bus service provides an hourly link to Bristol Airport between Weston-super-Mare and Nailsea. Changes to this service have been brought forward to protect the long term viability of the core of both routes.



The A2 service departs Weston-super-Mare for Nailsea every hour, serving West Wick, Banwell, Winscombe, Sandford, Churchill, Lower Langford, Wrington, Bristol Airport, Backwell and Nailsea.


The service also connects to the rail network at Weston-super-Mare, Worle and Nailsea & Backwell railway stations. 



Buses on the A2 route run from approximately 5am to 11pm, making it an ideal travel option for people commuting to or seeking employment at Bristol Airport.


On Sundays and Public Holidays, four return journeys operate on the route from 8am to 8.35pm.
