Service & timetable changes from Sunday 3rd September 2023

Following the end of the school summer holiday period, most bus services will revert back to normal schedules from Sunday 3rd September 2023, with some having minor changes to improve reliability.

Some other changes taking place from the same date that I am aware of are listed below.

24 – Coventry to Tile Hill (via Kenilworth)

New timetable with revised stopping places between Coventry and Kenilworth. The section between Kenilworth and Tile Hill will no longer be served.

82 – Solihull to Coventry

Following completion of M42 bridge works, service reverts to previous routing between Catherine-de-Barnes and Hampton-in-Arden, no longer serving Eastcote. Also resumes serving Parkhill Drive terminus again. New timetable available here.

96 – Kingstanding to Chelmsley Wood/Birmingham Airport

New timetable will be introduced to help with reliability issues.

New timetable available here.

A15 – Shirley Station to Lyndon
A16 – Acocks Green to Yardley Swan Island

Service A16 will be withdrawn, much of its route will be incorporated into a new extended A15 service, which will operate from Shirley station to Solihull town centre, via Robin Hood, Acocks Green, Lyndon, Hobs Moat and Lode Heath. Yardley Swan Island, Warwick Road and Olton station will no longer be served.

Map and timetable available here.

X12 – Birmingham to Solihull (via Birmingham Airport)

Following feedback received, buses travelling towards Birmingham will continue to serve the Airport terminal as normal, but will then use Station Link Road to serve Birmingham International Station. Buses will use stop SA at the interchange, before continuing along Station Way and Bickenhill Lane to rejoin the normal line of route.
