The Buzz

The Buzz is an electric taxi-bus that will provide convenient journeys in a vehicle shared with other passengers at an affordable price. It will be a sociable way to get around Bristol, meet new people, and save energy and money on the cost of your journey. It will operate in the areas of Ashely, Easton and Lawrence Hill.

Back to Smart Streets – new ways of getting around

How does the service work?

Buzz is events based, with passengers booking transport to-and-from community events, clubs or “events” – and these events might be a specific rail or coach service. The service is secured by event organisers, who then make it available to people attending that event. Passengers book online and pay £1 either online or in cash to the driver. The service is delivered in an electric, zero emissions, Hackney cab.

Where and when will it operate?

Buzz operates when booked by an event organiser. As part of the REPLICATE project it is ‘tethered’ to Ashley, Easton or Lawrence Hill; that is, it is designed to support travel to, from or within those wards. 

Opportunities to get involved?

If you organise events, particularly for wellbeing or access to work, we’d like to talk to you about how Buzz could support people getting to your event. Contact Liz Davidson via the Esoterix website.
