Crosville Motor Services has ceased operating its Crosville Flyer C1 and C2 services.

The operator reviewed the services with North Somerset Council and due to low passenger numbers, it was determined that they were not sustainable long-term without further funding. The company took the decision to cease operating the Crosville Flyer from Friday, January 6, 2017.

Since Monday, January 9, 2017, First has been providing two additional early morning journeys on Service X5, allowing passengers from Weston-super-Mare, Clevedon and Portishead to connect to North Bristol via Cribbs Causeway. Passengers with Crosville Flyer season tickets valid beyond January 6 received a full pro-rata refund for the remaining validity. Any passengers with over five days of unused journey credits will also receive a refund.

Jonathan Jones-Pratt from Crossville Motor Services said: “We would like to thank our passengers for their custom over the past year.”
