From Sunday 26th January 2020, we have changes to services in the Wren's Nest area following the recent consultation.
The 8 will no longer serve Wren's Nest from 26th January. It will still run between Wollaston Farm, Stourbridge, Merry Hill and Dudley, but will then extend to Wolverhampton along Priory Road and Birmingham New Road.
Between Dudley and Wren's Nest, the 8 will be replaced by the 27, 27A and 81. The 82 will still run between Dudley and Wrens Nest as it does now.
From Dudley, the 27, 27A and 81 will combine to run every 15 minutes along Priory Road, Hazel Road, Laurel Road, Summer Road, Wren's Nest Road, Old Park Road and Burton Road. From Burton Road, the 27 & 27A will continue along Jews Lane towards Gornal. From Burton Road, the 81 will continue along Eve Lane Parkes Hall Road and Sedgley Road towards Roseville.
The 27, 27A and 81 will run in both directions along Old Park Road rather than in one direction only. This means that Wren's Nest will have more buses than currently and journey times from Dudley will be faster for customers travelling to Old Park Road.
