Discover our Platinum buses

Stretch your legs and charge your phone, safe in the knowledge that we'll let you know when to get off the bus with our next stop announcements. Prices on platinum services are the same as our standard buses!

In addition to the on-board features we work closely with Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) to ensure bus stops are improved where possible. We aim for a regular set of drivers on these services who are specially trained to drive platinum vehicles and fully understand the route and features of these buses. Platinum buses score 98% for overall customer satisfaction.
