Upcoming Bus Service Changes

In addition to our yearly bus network reviews, we are constantly working with operators to monitor services and make improvements where we can. To increase the efficiency of the network, bus operators may make minor changes to their services throughout the year.

Bus operators must register these changes with us six weeks in advance, but occasionally urgent changes will have less notice. Below is a list of all changes we have been made aware of. 

We work to update our online timetables, journey planner, and at-stop information before the change date, however this is not always possible. Please check your journey before you travel to ensure you have the most up-to-date information.


Some bus routes will change operator.

Nbus is now the only ticket for bus travel and can be used on any operator in the West Midlands.
