Before it closed to passenger traffic in 1964, the Portishead line included a station at Portbury, located between Pill and Portishead.

Phase 1b of the MetroWest programme is focused on reopening the Portishead line, with stations at Portishead and Pill. No provision has been made for a restored Portbury station.

The former station house is now a private residence.

Friends of Suburban Bristol Railways are undeterred and continue to campaign for a reopened Portbury station.
