What about OpenStreetMapping bus routes and stops? I visited Bristol for a weekend recently and it would of been very helpful to know: geographic bus routes including all stops not just main ones; where exactly they stop. This is not available from any website and not even from contacting First directly. Day travel ticket for all of Bristol is £3.50 and available on board the bus.

I may consider going from London for the weekend event, I liked Bristol and may be applying to the uni there in a few weeks. (coach only about £4 return) I should learn how to map my new GPS reciever logs and get them on OpenStreetMap.

As a longtime well-wisher towards OpenStreetMap, ... I'd love to help, when you come to town. But I'm a bit vague on what exactly is done, and how to prepare for it. I have a GPS and laptop and knowledge of some of the city. Anything I should be reading up on etc? What exactly happens? :)

Busses in Bristol

When riding the busses in Bristol there is one caveat: Busses in the northern end of the city may be operated by South Gloucestershire Bus company and they don't accept First's "day rider" tickets. And, of course, vice-versa. Off the top of my head I can't think of a good bus map for Bristol, but the Traveline web service is usually pretty good for timetables. --Matt 18:44, 19 January 2007 (UTC)

Cycle routes

If someone were to map National Cycle Route 4 west out of Bristol, that'd be wonderful. We tried to cycle it a few weeks ago and got hopelessly lost. The signs appear to give out about 50 yards from the cathedral (so about 75 yards from Sustrans' head office)... --Richard 19:27, 11 February 2007 (UTC)
