This bus after the changes is meant to appear every 15 minutes but appears about every hour honestly it never comes compared to its counterpart that stops at perry barr, which arrives about every 10 minutes. The timetables and bus trackers will say the bus is due and it won’t show countless times something must be done surely.

Hi @john and welcome to the WMBU Community!

The problem unfortunately is the ongoing roadworks in Perry Barr that is likely causing the delays on that side of the service, the section that runs from Erdington to Acocks Green via Perry Barr.

And then there is other traffic too, I understand at particular times this service is often turning short at Witton (Villa Park) in order to keep to time, which obviously doesn't help passengers looking to travel from Erdington beyond Perry Barr.

You may wish to consider getting the 11A to Perry Barr and then changing there instead of waiting in Erdington, just in case buses are being turned short.

I don't know how much longer these roadworks are intended to last for, I'm sure I read previously that they were supposed to be completed by November 2021, but this clearly isn't the case.
