The final details and specifications of the new franchise, which will be drafted by the Department of Transport in the coming weeks, will shape railway provision for the region for the next 15 years. The aim of the meeting is to create a consensus on what should be included in the brief.
The meeting will also discuss the issues surrounding integrated transport and the possibility of creating a new transport authority for the Bristol area. It has been organised by pressure group the Transport for the Greater Bristol Alliance.
Spokesman Daniel Casey said: "This is the last opportunity to push for the improvements we wish to see prioritised for the region."
