Catch the cricket this summer 

Edgbaston stadium has a range of exciting games coming up this summer and we’re pleased to be the official shuttle bus partner again!

The shuttle bus service will be available for selected fixtures in 2021. Please check the specific fixture spectator guide on the Edgbaston stadium website for more details about the match you are attending.

The 501 Shuttle Bus pick-up point is located from right outside New Street Station on Smallbrook Queensway (opposite TK Maxx and close to the Bullring). The service is convenient for users of both New Street and Moor Street Train Stations. Buses will start running two hours before the start of play. 

Buses will be running back from the stadium to the city centre after the close of play.

On Staurday 18th September 2021, We will be operating shuttle services from 9am until to 11am from Smallbrook Queensway. Return journeys will begin at the end of play. All Cricket Shuttle tickets will be valid on our 45 and 47 services during the day to and from the ground.

A return journey on the shuttle bus service is available for just £5 for adults and £3.50 for children. You can pre-book your ticket on our mTicket app. Simply go to Singles and daysavers, then scroll down to ‘Edgbaston Cricket 501 Shuttle’ and choose your ticket. 

Shuttle bus tickets are only valid on days when we are running 501 shuttle buses to Edgbaston. Shuttle bus tickets are valid for 90 days, from the date of purchase. Only validate your ticket when you board the bus.
