Megabus run coaches from Bristol to destinations throughout the UK including frequent coach services to London and direct services to other places elsewhere in the United Kingdom.
Megabus coach services depart from the bus stop on Bond Street near Blacks in the city centre. This is just a regular bus stop on the street and not a proper coach station.
It is important to note that there are two entrances to Blacks and Bond Street is considered by many to be the rear entrance to the shop. This can be confusing as there is also a bus stop at Blacks other entrance (on The Horsefair). It is important that you go to the Bond Street entrance to Blacks, particularly if you have someone dropping you off at the coach stop as it the one-way traffic system in Bristol city centre means that it can easily take five minutes to drive what would otherwise be a 50m (164ft) walk if Blacks were open.
Bond Street is a busy dual-carriageway with both carriageways divided by a safety barrier that makes this a difficult street to cross.
Although it may seem like a pretty barren place to wait for a bus, it is in the city centre and there are plenty of places nearby to eat and drink including a McDonalds just a one-minute walk up the road.
There are several places to stay nearby, including a Hampton by Hilton and a Holiday Inn right across the road as well as two different Premier Inns a five-minute walk from the coach stop.
This coach stop is only used by Megabus coach services. Other buses and coaches, including National Express coaches, First and Stagecoach regional buses and the Bristol Airport Flyer coach, depart from the Bristol Bus and Coach Station, which is a five-minute walk away on the other side of the Bearpit.
