"Travel West Midlands" Buses Tip by J_P_B

Buses, Birmingham: 9 reviews and 7 photos

The bus system is very well connected, but is becoming increasingly expensive. I've never been a big fan of it and would sooner catch the train, but unfortunately, just before they privatised the buses in Birmingham, they closed many of the local stations... hmmm... I wonder why they did that? It's ridiculous if you consider how badly congested Birmingham's roads are. There are lots of bus lanes to compensate. There is an office outside New Street Station which has all the info you need regarding Buses. The maximum price of an off-peak ticket is currently an expensive £1. Well, I suppose it stops you routing around for change!
