Check your timetable - transport network set for festive running

Solihull Editorial 22nd Dec, 2020   0

TRANSPORT for West Midlands (TfWM) has partnered with bus, train and tram operators to ensure the region keeps moving with a safe transport network over the festive season.

But there will be changes to services across Christmas and New Year so those who still need to travel are being advised to check timetables and plan ahead.

Everyone should be wearing a face covering on board and at stations and stops unless exempt.

Anne Shaw, director of Network Resilience for TfWM said: “We have worked with our bus and tram operators to ensure there are services running every day except Christmas Day for those who need them.

“But we would ask people to check timetables, plan their journeys in advance and allow plenty of time as services will be reduced – especially on bank holidays.

“We have all the information on services at where you can keep up to date with any disruption and the latest rules on social distancing.

“And, unless exempt, remember to wear a face covering for your whole journey.”

As usual there will be no public transport services running on Christmas Day and the railways will remain closed on Boxing Day.

National Express will be running 155 services with a Sunday timetable on Boxing Day, while Diamond Buses are running 19 services.

Some services will stop early at about 7pm.

West Midlands Metro will also be operating a Sunday timetable on Boxing Day.
