A review of the bus services that Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) financially supports bus operators to run (tendered bus services) is being undertaken. These are the services that operators have not opted to run commercially (for profit). Transport for West Midlands funds these services to ensure residents are able to make socially necessary journeys.
TfWM are keen to highlight that they are not looking to reduce the support for bus services across the borough. TfWM are looking at how they can use that support to give the best possible service to all residents in the area, whilst pursuing opportunities to grow and develop the network further. They would appreciate your help in shaping the future bus network in your area, by giving your opinions on the proposals and ideas, before any final decisions are made.
Any changes will be introduced from 23rd February 2019. TfWM would really like to hear your views on their proposals and options.
Speak to staff and fill in a questionnaire at an exhibition on Wednesday 3 October 0900 to 1500 in the West Midlands Combined Authority marquee near to the former Maplins, High Street, Solihull. Alternatively visit networkwestmidlands.com/solihull to see a copy of the proposed map of changes and to fill in a questionnaire.
