Changes coming to Coventry bus network

Coventry Editorial 16th Oct, 2023   0

NATIONAL Express Coventry has announced a raft of changes to its city service, including a new bus, revised timetables, and an axed route.

The changes, which will take effect on November 5, will see the timetable for the 7/7B service revised along with the Sunday service times for the 6/6A and the 15 routes.

The 2 and 2A timetables will also change and the buses will no longer serve Earlsdon, although during peak daytime hours the route will extend from Tile Hill to Westwood Business Park and during off-peak daytime hours it will extend to Cannon Hill Shops.

The 2B service will continue to serve Earlsdon.

The 19 service between Westwood Business Park, Tile Hill and Coventry city centre will no longer operate, although it will be partially replaced by the number 2 between Cannon Park, Tile Hill and the city centre.

A new service 51 will begin operating on Sunday between the city centre, Earlsdon, Hearsall Common and Coundon.

However, the 54 service will no longer serve the city centre and will instead start and finish at Spon End.

And from Sunday (October 22) the timetable for the X1 service between Coventry and Birmingham will change.

National Express Network Director Ed Rickard said: “We know our bus services are vital lifelines for many customers and communities and we have been working closely with Transport for West Midlands to continue protecting as many services as possible across Coventry and the wider region.

“Along with bus operators nationwide, we are seeing changes to travel patterns due to several lifestyle changes, including more people working from home and shopping online.

“This means we have to look at our network to ensure we can maintain the best bus coverage for the people of Coventry.”
