'Improved services' as National Express alters timetable changes

Solihull Editorial 21st Aug, 2021   0

NATIONAL Express West Midlands is making a number of changes to bus services from August 29, including improved services to Castle Bromwich and Chelmsley Wood.

The firm said these latest confirmed changes will improve journeys by adjusting services to meet customer demand and also take into account the expected increase in traffic from September.

Commercial director Chris Gibbens said: “Children are going back to school in September, so roads will be busier and more people will be travelling.

“These latest timetable improvements will keep the region moving by enabling our buses to run more reliably and get our customers to where they need to be.

“We’re changing some routes to better meet the recent and emerging travel patterns of our customers, as well as bringing overall improvements across our network.

“Some roads may have a different service than the service they have now and some journeys will change, and we’ve worked hard to ensure reliable connections and alternatives remain in place.

“The latest service changes and our recent fares reduction make it even easier for customers to safely get back to normal.

“We’d urge everybody to check our website nxbus.co.uk for full details of how these changes might affect them.

“All of the new timetables are available on our website now and printed information will be available soon.”

Several areas of Birmingham will see improved bus links as a result of the August changes, including Castle Vale, Castle Bromwich, Chelmsley Wood, and Bartley Green.

Warren Farm is also being served for the first time.

National Express West Midlands has continued to work closely with Transport for West Midlands through the Bus Alliance to provide the right public transport network for the region.
