MetroWest, formerly known as the Greater Bristol Metro, is a proposal to improve the rail services in Bristol, England, and the surrounding region. It was first proposed at First Great Western’s Stakeholder Event in March 2008. The aim of the project is to develop half-hourly services through central Bristol which will also serve the surrounding West of England region. Transport campaigning group, Transport for Greater Bristol are actively supporting the proposal, as are the four unitary authorities. Services are expected to start in 2019 for phase 1 and 2021 for phase 2.
Earlier plans for a metro system were promoted by then MEP Richard Cottrell in 1986 and acts of Parliament were secured. This would have used existing track with new build through the city centre. However the scheme folded when Advanced Transport for Avon was wound up with debts of £3.8 million.

Rail usage in the West of England doubled in the 10 years, 1999 to 2009. The campaign’s website was officially launched in February 2012. Improvement plans have been prepared by engineering consultancy Halcrow Group.
