National Express Coventry counts down to Christmas

With the countdown to Christmas well and truly under way, National Express Coventry is keeping customers moving this festive season.

The bus operator has announced details of its Christmas and New Year services, with buses running every day except Christmas Day.

National Express Coventry’s X30 service will operate to normal timetable. The 4A, 13A , 20 and 21A which serve industrial and business parks will operate special timetables. 

All other services will operate as normal up to and including Sunday 22nd December. Between 23rd December and 3rd January 2020 the services will be running to amended timetables, with extra early buses on some routes. 

National Express Coventry has also released a festive offer by announcing that the £3 Evening Ticket is now available to buy via contactless and cash. 

Chris Gibbens, Commercial Director for National Express UK Bus, said:

“With the roads and car parks getting busier and the festive celebrations in full swing, we’d like to remind customers that we’re here to be their designated driver.

“Our £3 Evening Ticket offer is perfect for those heading out to celebrate in the lead up to Christmas and New Year. It was an exclusive on our app but we’ve now extended it for Christmas and New Year so that our customers can also buy with cash or contactless.

“Anybody boarding a bus after 18:00 can now tap their card on the reader and however many more times they travel that evening, they won’t pay more than £3.”
