First bus launches bookable seats

First bus launches bookable seats

Book my bus ride is the latest innovation from first bus, for when you absolutely, definitely have to get on that bus. Whether you are returning to work, have an important interview, a hospital appointment or need to connect to a train, sometimes you just need to know you’ll be on a specific bus journey to get there. Wouldn’t it be great if you could guarantee a space? Now you can, with Book my bus ride!

Initially, the new Book my Bus initiative will be available on just three routes as part of a trial, with just under half of the available seats can be booked:

  • Brislington Park & Ride – launched 27 July 2020All journeys will be bookable on this service
  • Batheaston – Weston via Bath City Centre & Royal United Hospital (3b) – bookings launch 3 August 2020All journeys will be bookable on this service
  • Thornbury – Bristol (T1b) – bookings launch 10 August 2020All Monday to Friday AM and PM peak time journeys are bookable

Journeys can be booked up to one week in advance via There is no charge for booking and you have the choice to use an existing ticket (mTicket, paper, Travelwest smartcard or concession pass) or buy one when you book.

What do you think of this new initiative? Will you use it?
