SERVICE CHANGES Timetable increases from 24th May 2020
From Sunday 24th May
we are increasing the number of buses on nearly all of our Birmingham and Black Country routes.
We are increasing our services back up to three quarters of pre-coronavirus levels after the prime minister encouraged more people to return to work if they can’t work from home. No routes will change, but buses will arrive more frequently.
Those bus routes that were suspended during lockdown will also operate again:
10 - Birmingham to Quinton
10A/C - Stourbridge Circulars
22 - Oldbury to Bearwood
25 - Birmingham to Selly Oak
32 - Hall Green to Acocks Green
50 - Wolverhampton to Wednesfield
54A - West Bromwich to Quinton
61 - Wolverhampton to Goldthorn Park
96 - Kingstanding to Chelmsley Wood (only currently operating part route)
Putting more buses into service will mean more room on each bus so safe social distancing can be practiced. Wherever we can, we are using double deckers to make more space on board.
In this ‘new normal’, we are asking people travelling to stay apart to stay safe.
Customers should also follow government guidance on staying safe outside their home, including wearing a face covering and avoiding peak travel times where possible.
We have worked closely with Transport for West Midlands through the Bus Alliance to co-ordinate these latest changes and will continue to carefully monitor customer numbers adjusting timetables accordingly.
There are no changes to National Express Coventry services on 24th May 2020.
Bank holiday services will be as follows:
Sunday 24th May 2020 - New Sunday timetable
Monday 25th May 2020 (bank holiday) - New Sunday timetable
