Website offers transport help
MORE than 1,000 people are now receiving regular online travel updates on delays, roadworks, diversions and public transport in Bristol.
The council has a website, Travel Bristol.org for transport information and an account with social networking service Twitter, @TravelBristol, where users can get updates.
Liberal Democrat Cabinet councillor for transport Tim Kent said: "Twitter is a simple tool to ensure messages can get out there quickly. Twitter and Travel Bristol combined means you can make the right choice, based on up-to-date information, before you even set out.
"It's good news for the traveller, and it's already having a positive impact on traffic congestion.
