Route 20: University – Twerton

The service is currently being run with diesel buses to begin with, but the plan is to transition to electric over the next year, powered by renewable energy and owned by the community.

Up until 1 April 2023 we also ran the 11 and 12 services, these are now operated by Faresaver. Click here for information. We would like to thank our passengers for travelling with us, it has been a real pleasure getting to you know and we hope to see you again one day!

Bus Drivers Wanted!

We’re recruiting!

The Big Lemon is looking for qualified PSV drivers to drive route 20, as well as all our Bristol route 515 and other local services.

As well as excellent rates of pay, a welcome bonus and free membership of the Transport Benevolent Fund, we offer the opportunity to work in a small family team where everyone is a name, not a number; and we all work together to do our best for our colleagues and for the community.
