Buses will run up to every 8 minutes
The good bits:
+ Buses will run more often - up to every 8 minutes during the day
+ You will no longer need to change buses when travelling from Birmingham and Harborne to Quinton Road West, or from Highfield Lane to Harborne and Birmingham
+ Harborne to Birmingham buses will now simply be numbered 23 / 24
+ New platinum buses on route 24, offering premium comfort with extra legroom, wifi and USB points
The bad bits:
- Parts of Simmons Drive will no longer be served by the 24
The route terminus at Woodgate Valley South will now move to Quinton Road West at West Boulevard.
The route between Birmingham and Four Dwellings School will not change. From Four Dwellings School, buses will run along Highfield Lane, then up Simmonds Drive to run along Quinton Road West. This means the lower part of Simmonds Drive will not be served by the 24. The nearest stops can be located on Simmonds Drive close to the phone box, or along Quinton Road West as they are now.
An alternative service will be provided along Simmons Drive by igo, routes 10 / 10H / 10S, which will change at the same time. These buses will serve the full length of Simmons Drive. Further details about this service will be available from networkwm.com or igo shortly.
