At Avon Coaches and Countryside Properties, the safety of our staff and customers is paramount, so we’ve made the difficult decision to suspend our services from 27/03/20.

We would like to apologise to all our loyal passengers and assure you that this will be reviewed on an ongoing basis as we look forward to providing you with our reliable service in the future. Any discount periods or valid til dates on purchased tickets will be extended to take account of the time when the MyLocal Flyer service is not running. Although the service did run through to 27/03/20 we will consider 23/03/20 as the first date of shutdown. So, if we can resume normal service as of 01/06/20 then we will add 70 days to the valid till dates on discount periods or tickets held on 23/03/20. Please stay safe, follow the guidelines and keep well.
