On Sunday 22nd July 2018, our 10A route was extended to serve Lichfield bus station, from Walsall, Rushall, Brownhills, Chasetown and Burntwood, seven days a week.
The 10A now runs up to every 30 minutes Monday to Saturday, and up to every 60 minutes on Sundays. Crucially, it means that we're providing a much needed Sunday service to Lichfield, following the complete withdrawal of bus services in April this year.
With this new link, Black Country residents can board the 10A in Walsall centre and have a day out in Lichfield to enjoy Georgian museums, Lichfield Cathedral and the Three Spires Shopping Centre. They can also travel to the National Memorial Arboretum or visit the great outdoors of Beacon Park or Chasewater Country Park.
In the opposite direction, Lichfield residents can make use of the frequent 10A service to travel into Walsall and visit the Walsall Arboretum, The New Art Gallery or keep the kids busy this summer at Adventureland.
National Express West Midlands regional passes are valid to and from Lichfield. The maximum adult single fare is £2.40 or an adult daysaver is £4.60 (before 9:30am Mon-Fri) or £4.00 (after 9:30am or anytime at weekends).
Contactless is also available across our entire fleet, meaning you can pay for your journey by tapping your bank card on the onboard card reader. The first tap pays for a single trip, then however many more trips you make that day, you'll never be charged more than an adult daysaver ticket. Read more about contactless here.
Holders of Your Staffordshire Cards (U16 and U20) can also travel to or from Staffordshire for a flat fare of £1.30.
