National Express West Midlands are making a number of changes to their services this Sunday.

Platinum services get the X factor

From Sunday 4 December National Express WM are changing the numbers of several Platinum bus routes to begin with the letter “X”. This change is to make clear that these buses are limited stop for part of their route. The change affects the route numbers only – the timetables and routes remain the same.

  • 900 will become X1
  • 902 will become X3
  • 904 will become X4
  • 905 will become X5
  • 914 will become X14
  • 957 will become X2

In addition to the new “X” service numbers, brand new Platinum buses will be introduced for Bristol Road customers, on the X61 (currently 61). The X61 will be a limited stop service and will use the Selly Oak relief road instead of the B384.
