Off Peak Hire

What is an 'Off Peak' hire? National Express is extremely well known for its daily bus services around the West Midlands. Our buses run early morning services to get people to work and then return commuters after their busy working day. Schools based in the West Midlands who want to hire a bus for an educational trip within the local area may be able to utilise one of our buses in between our commuter journeys. As our buses are already out of the depot we can offer great value rates on your school hire - providing the timing of your trip compliments our Bus Timetable.

'In-between' hire checklist;

  • Is your school West Midlands based?
  • Can we pick you up from 09.15 onwards?
  • Can we drop you off by 15.15?
  • Need a modern, high spec vehicle?
  • Need a competitive price and value for money?

With prices starting from as little as £150 our Off Peak hire offers great value for your school trip.

Vintage bus hire

If you fancy something a bit different we have a classic 1950's vintage bus available to hire, in the old Birmingham City Transport livery. A popular choice for weddings and special events. Hiring the vintage bus for your event is a great way to get everyone transported together in style. Guests can be picked up and enjoy a hassle-free day, with National Express looking after their transportation arrangements,

*Please note - we only have one vintage bus, in the unlikely event that the 'old girl' should be mechanically unwell we reserve the right to substitute a modern bus
