Portway Park & Ride is a new station being built on the Severn Beach line in Bristol. It will be located alongside the existing bus Park & Ride site on the A4 Portway, close to Junction 18 of the M5.

Once open, the station will provide another choice of sustainable travel into city centre as well as to destinations along the Severn Beach line and connections to the wider rail network.

The station is due to open in early 2023.


The station will have a fully accessible single platform which will be served by existing trains on the Severn Beach line.

It will be equipped with:
  • A ticket machine
  • Smart ticket readers
  • Live train departure screens
  • A help point
Access to the station will be through the existing Portway Park & Ride site.

Once the station has opened, the existing bus Park & Ride site will remain in operation with buses departing to the city centre every 20 minutes.

Making the work possible

The station is being funded by:
  • Department for Transport
  • Bristol City Council
  • West of England Combined Authority
The project forms part of the wider MetroWest programme of transport improvements.
