Services 5 / 6 / 6A

There will be slight changes to make the 5 service more reliable:

5  Solihull – Monkspath – Shirley – Sarehole Mill – Birmingham  

Buses will run up to every 20 minutes

The good bits:

+ More reliable buses by avoiding Springfield Road and queuing traffic in Solihull

+ Robin Hood Lane will be served again

The bad bits:

- Buses will not serve Springfield Road due to ongoing issues with parking

Between Solihull and Widney Manor Station, buses will no longer serve stops on New Road and Warwick Road, due to unpredictable delays caused by traffic queuing for town centre car parks.

At Widney Manor Station, buses towards Solihull will now stop opposite the station entrance and not pull into the forecourt.

Springfield Road will no longer be served due to ongoing issues with parking, preventing larger vehicles from passing and causing unpredictable delays. All buses on this route will now serve Showell Green Lane. 

There will be slight changes to the 6 / 6A:

6  - Solihull - Shirley - Hall Green - Birmingham

Buses will run up to every 6 minutes

There will be no changes made to the 6 route, however there will be minor changes to the timetable to improve reliability. 

The 6A will be withdrawn. Passengers for business parks between Shirley and Monkspath will still be served up to every 20 minutes by the 5

New Service Timetables:

Service 5 Timetable - From 22nd July 

Service 6 Timetable - From 22nd July
