Consultation on Changes to Bus Routes

Transport for West Midlands We are considering the following changes and options, with the intention that any changes are introduced from 23rd February 2019. They would like to hear your views on the following options.

S2 WEST Shirley to Cheswick Green Option 1
Blossomfield Road and Marshall Lake Road no longer served (served by 6 and 76). Existing S2 route served from Cheswick Green to Stratford Road as far as Shirley before continuing to Shirley Rail Station. There would be the opportunity to interchange at Marshall Lake Road for onward travel to Solihull.

S2 WEST Shirley Circular – Option 2
The full route of this would be Shirley – Wythall – Tidbury Green – Dickens Heath – Blythe Valley – Cheswick Green – Shirley.
This would combine the S2 with part of the S3. Solihull would not be served. This service could also be used to provide bus links to Blythe Valley to ensure that residents on this new development have a service when this is complete.

S2 WEST – Shirley – Dorridge – Option 3
Option 3 is to operate the S2 from Shirley Station – Shirley – Cheswick Green – Blythe Valley – Hockley Heath – Dorridge.
This would link Cheswick Green and Blythe Valley to Dorridge Station and Shirley Station, providing links into different rail lines.

S2 CIRCULAR – Option 4
Option 4 is to operate the S2 as South Solihull circular service. It could serve Solihull Station – Widney Manor – Dorridge – Blythe Valley – Cheswick Green – Shirley – Solihull Station.
This would link Cheswick Green and Blythe Valley to Dorridge Station and Solihull Station.

Consultation will be open from Monday 24 September, for a period of three weeks.  As part of this there will be a public exhibition in Solihull Town Centre (near to the former Maplins) on Wednesday 3 October from 9am until 3pm
