HistoryEdit

ServicesEdit

Avia is currently comprised of five colour coded routes. All terminate at Bristol Castle Park

BlueEdit

Blue line services run from the centre of Bristol to Bradley Stoke and Cribbs Causeway, before doubling back and terminating at Temple Meads. The line operates at a ten minute frequency during daytime hours, meaning that there is a combined Blue line tram every 5 minutes along the core section between Temple Meads and Parkway.

UWE shuttle busEdit

The AvonTrans UWE free shuttle bus meets every other Blue line service from the city centre at Filton Abbey Wood, linking trams, trains and the UWE Frenchay campus (see AvonTrans services)

YellowEdit

Yellow line services run from Siston Hill on the eastern edge of the conurbation, via the former Midland Railway alignment through Staple Hill and Fishponds to Lawrence Hill and the City centre. During Peak hours, trams operate every 5 minutes along the route, with half terminating at Temple Meads

MaroonEdit

Maroon line services run from Parson Street station via Ashton Gate Park and Ride to the City centre via Cumberland Road and St Mary Redcliffe. The line is the shortest route of the five, although future plans could see the route extended out to Hengrove Park and Hartcliffe. Much of the Maroon route utilises the route of the Nineteenth centuryBristol Harbour Railway

TealEdit

Teal line trams operate on the former Severn Beach branch. From Avonmouth, trams run along the Avon Gorge before heading inland via a tunnel beneath Clifton Down.

PinkEdit

Pink line services operate every 10 minutes during peak periods from Portishead to the city centre. Services to Portishead share the route between Ashton Avenue Bridge and Temple Circus with Maroon line trams.
