West Dudley Consultation

Update on possible changes to services in West Dudley

Thank you to everybody who responded in our recent consultation on possible changes to bus services in the West Dudley area. 

The consultation has now closed and we are carefully reviewing feedback before we make any final decisions on changes to the network later this year. 

As soon as changes have been confirmed, we will publish information on our website, on board buses and through social media.

The majority of changes relate to West Dudley, however some Wolverhampton and Staffordshire services would also be affected.

In summary, the proposed route changes will bring:

  • Better reliability to our bus services
  • Increased service frequencies
  • A simpler network that is easier to understand
  • New direct links between Stourbridge, Wollaston and Merry Hill to Roseville and Wolverhampton
  • More links to Russells Hall Hospital

Routes that may change include: 

  • 2 & 2A
  • 4
  • 8
  • 15 & 15A
  • 16
  • 17
  • 27 & 27A
  • 81
  • 82
  • X8

Other routes in the area are unlikely to change.

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

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