New Bus Service at Blythe Valley Park

We are pleased to announce that a new bus service has been set up to serve Blythe Valley Park and surrounding villages by Transport for West Midlands, commencing from this Sunday 24th February.  The service will be operated by Landflight.

The new bus route, known as A7 / A8, is a seven day a week service running from 6am through to 10pm during weekdays, that will provide bus travel to and from Blythe Valley Park throughout the day.  Copies of the timetable, route map and pricing structure are available on the ‘location’ section on the website.

Please note that this is a public service, where customers will need to pay for their journeys. Whilst the new service settles, we will be continuing to run the Blythe Valley Park subsidised service to and from Solihull Station in the morning and evening peaks until those working at the Park get used to the new service.  In addition, the bus route to Birmingham International Station will continue to run in the morning and evenings. 

The service will have buses running clockwise and anticlockwise connecting Blythe Valley Park to Solihull Station, Dorridge Station and Widney Manor Station as well as local settlements such as Cheswick Green, Hockley Heath, Dorridge, Bentley Heath, Monkspath and Hillfield.

This is a hugely positive step forward for Blythe Valley providing improved public transport connectivity for those working at the Park.  We recognise that it will take some time for the service to bed in and for that reason we will continue to run the Blythe Valley Park subsidised service to and from Solihull Station in the morning and evening peaks until those working at the Park get used to the new service.  In addition, the bus route to Birmingham International Station will continue to run in the morning and evenings.

We would be grateful if you could share the new timetables and route maps with your colleagues particularly those that use public transport, and more importantly with those who wish to ‘ditch the car’ and get to work in a more sustainable way!
