Bristol Airport have advised that as part of the ongoing development of the Airport a free-of-charge space for taxis and public that are dropping off and collecting passengers has been provided. The Waiting Zone area is located close to the entrance of our Silver Zone car park and will clearly be sign posted upon entering the Silver Zone area.
The Waiting Zone allows up to 1 hour free of charge that may be used for the waiting of passenger pick up, prior to collection from the Short Stay & Pick Up car park. There will also be access to a frequent bus service to the Terminal building if passengers do wish to be collected or dropped off in this area. The Waiting Zone will have pedestrian signage to the bus stop location close by. From the terminal, passengers will be required to use bus stop 4 on the forecourt and board the bus for the Staff Transportation Hub.
The aim is to reduce the volume of cars waiting in local roads, lanes and laybys that can cause a disturbance to residents in
the local villages. The Waiting Zone area will be operational from 10am on 30th September 2019. The area provides 60 minutes free-of-charge. Stays exceeding 60 minutes and up to 2 hours will be charged at £25. Each additional or part hour thereafter will be charged at £20. Please note there is a no return policy within 1 hour of exiting
