Currently, The Dings does not have a bus service. This leaves those that live in the Home Zone and work in the industrial areas severed, bar the Bristol to Bath path. We believe that diverting the First bus 36 service via Unity Street, Midland Road and Day's road. This would mean those travelling from St Anne's Park would and Barton Hill can still get off at Old Market and the Dings residences and workplaces are served by a regular bus service.
An alternative route could be down Silverthorne Lane to then join Kingsland Road; this would mean a regular bus route to Avonmeads Retail Park, Temple Quarter regeneration areas such as St Philips and Silverthorne Lane and the Dings' residential and light industrial areas.
