Reprieve for West Midland Bus partnership ticketing arrangements from Sunday 29th August

It has previously been announced that the current West Midlands Bus partnership between NX West Midlands and DIamond Bus will be coming to an end this Sunday (29th August 2021). However Diamond Bus have announced today that following discussions with both NX Bus and TfWM, the current ticketing arrangements will remain in place for a further 4 weeks.

Since early August we have been in negotiations with TfWM and National Express West Midlands to try and agree a process, whereby the partnership services can continue to be operated sustainably.

Whilst a final arrangement is yet to be reached, Diamond Bus has agreed that we will continue to accept and sell NX tickets on partnership routes for a further 4-week period, National Express will also continue to accept and sell Diamond Value products – as per the current agreement.

It is hoped that within this 4-week period a final agreement can be reached in the interest of both the partnership service passengers and our business needs.

The published timetable changes from 29th August 2021, will continue to go ahead as planned however the ticketing arrangements will not be changed at this time.
