Free 'Big Society' bus service for Bristol due to start | Bristol24-7

Free 'Big Society' bus service for Bristol due to start | Bristol24-7: "A free bus service launching this Saturday in Bristol, and funded entirely by local residents, aims to provide a glimpse of what David Cameron’s ‘Big Society’ should look like.
Freebus is the first group in the UK to offer community funded public transport that is free at the point of use. The project is launching further services across the city later this year and aims to develop a model for communities across the country to take control of their public transport systems.
The initial service links Temple Meads station with the city centre. Chair Jack Phillips said the group were “amazed” by the interest the project had generated."
