In early 2013, following concerns about the impact of rapid transit buses using the Harbourside and crossing Prince Street Bridge, a review of alternative routes was carried out by Bristol City Council.

The review recommended a route along Cumberland Road, Commercial Road and Redcliff Hill as being the best alternative to using Prince Street Bridge and the Harbourside for the Ashton Vale to Temple Meads (AVTM) route.
