Coventry Network Consultation

The survey has now closed, thank you for taking part. 

The current network of Coventry bus routes has not changed much since 2012.

Since then, the population of the city has changed and so has demand for bus services. Congestion has also got worse.

During June and July 2019 we held a consultation on the proposed changes to our Coventry services. We’ve listened to our customers, community groups and other stakeholders. Based on their feedback we’ll be implementing our new network from 22nd September 2019.  

Here are some of the things you said:

  • 85% of those that completed the survey said buses should serve Eagle Street to cater for the faith, community and health centres. We're introducing a new 3 and 3A service along Eagle Street and Springfield Road.
  • 92% were in favour of running more buses at peak times on the 5 and 7 through Coundon. More peak buses will be introduced and the service will be better coordinated during off-peak periods to reduce customer waiting time.
  • 86% said they would like the 8 and 8A to run along Corporation Street in both directions. We're changing the route in line with this feedback.
  • 71% thought it would be good to have a direct link between Holbrooks and Coventry rail station. The road layout at the rail station is changing in November so we're delaying the change to allow time to assess how the new road layout works.

As with any change to bus routes, some people may lose a direct link or have to alter the time they travel. We've tried to minimise the impact of this.

Overall, most people will either see no change to the bus they catch or an improvement with more punctual and frequent buses.
