Issues with transport administrations and driver deficiencies in the Bristol area have been portrayed as a public vehicle "emergency".
First Transport and Stagecoach have said they are making an extraordinary move after administrations were influenced all through the city and in South Gloucestershire.
The manager of First has said issues are "not normal for some other the UK transport business has confronted".
The issues are being brought about by a blend of elements, including Coronavirus, strike activity at the DVLA, infection rates and social removing limitations keeping students from finishing their preparation.
HGV organizations poaching transport drivers with higher wages has likewise added to the issues.
The transport organizations are redeploying drivers or recruiting office staff as transient cover to keep less successive administrations and the day's last transports running.
The two organizations have said more undoings are unavoidable and the end isn't yet in sight.
The West of Britain City hall leader Dan Norris has said: "An absence of key arranging in the course of the last decade implies we are currently in emergency.
"The vehicle business has been giving critical admonitions about the driver lack for some a year.
"Yet, we are the place where we are and unmistakably there is a deficiency of drivers across the economy.
"We will do everything we can to enlist and hold drivers in these difficult conditions. They are imperative key specialists and we need a greater amount of them."
