UPDATED: Planned strike action has been postponed while drivers vote on a new pay offer. If this offer is rejected, the below changes will become effective from Monday 20th March instead. Read more here…

With strike action by Unite members due to begin from Thursday 16th March, NX West Midlands have today announced a very limited service level from that date, which mainly caters for people travelling to and from hospitals.

We are running a small number of buses that serve hospitals on their route. We anticipate that the services will be busy. You can find the timetables for these services on this web page. We are sorry for the significant disruption this will cause and we want to reassure you that we are doing all we can to minimise the impact on our customers.
