National Express West Midlands Purchases 38 New Buses for £10 Million
National Express West Midlands has spent £10 million on 38 brand new top-spec buses for routes that go through Harborne.
The very dark grey Platinum double deckers are all kitted out with comfy seats, extra leg room, free wifi and USB chargers.
From day one, the buses will be fitted with new ticket machines, which react much quicker than the old ones. This will speed up boarding times - only by several seconds, but over the course of a whole bus route, that time adds up.
The vehicles are arriving in batches from the Scottish manufacturer Alexander Dennis Ltd throughout December 2017.
