PROPOSALS to change some bus services in Solihull have been unveiled.
The proposed changes are to services that are funded by Transport for West Midlands and will coincide with the end of the current service contract, the organisation says.
It adds it has reviewed passenger usage, and considered requests from councillors and customers.
A service that is considered socially necessary and not provided by a commercial operator can be subsidised.
Transport for West Midlands, an executive arm of the West Midlands Combined Authority, adds: “The routes being considered are the S1, S2, S3 / S3W, S11, S15, 82, 87, 88 and 89. Any changes to the network would potentially be introduced from 23rd February 2019.
Proposed changes include a new service to the extended JLR site in Fen End Road, and the splitting of some services in Solihull Town Centre to improve reliability.”
A Transport for West Midlands spokesperson said: “We are looking at how we can use the financial support for bus provision in Solihull to give the best possible service to all residents in the area.”
The full proposals, route maps and a questionnaire are available on the website: networkwestmidlands.com/Solihull.
There will also be an exhibition marquee near to the former Maplin shop in High Street, Solihull from 9am to 3pm on Wednesday (October 3) where Transport for West Midlands staff will be available to answer questions.
Residents and bus users have until Sunday October 14 to respond to the consultation.
