Weston-super-Mare-based Crosville Motor Services Ltd is to take over the operation of the North Fringe Bristol Commuter Coach service next month, the firm has announced.

National Express-owned The Kings Ferry started operating the express service – which links Weston to North Bristol, via Clevedon – in November 2013, under contract to North Somerset Council. Crosville is to acquire two new coaches for the service, understood to be Yutong TC12s.

Crosville’s Managing Director Jonathan Jones-Pratt said: “This is very exciting to see Crosville venturing into Bristol – and it is also a great opportunity for further business growth, as well as expanding our geographical area of operation. The service is currently being operated by The King’s Ferry, who we have been in various discussions for a smooth transitional handover. We will take over the service on April 25.”
