Enhanced Partnership

An Enhanced Partnership Plan and accompanying Scheme have been prepared. 

15th June 2020

The Strategic Vision for Bus clearly sets out the objective to achieve modal shift by providing exceptional service and reliability, along with improved comfort and accessibility for passengers.  The introduction of the first Sprint corridors provides a major opportunity for investment by the public and private sectors to achieve further benefits and improvements to bus services across the region. These improvements will contribute to a step change in public transport that will set the foundations for an integrated transport system throughout the West Midlands.

The next stage in the EP development is engagement and consultation with the public and wider stakeholder.  For any further information please contact Edmund.salt@tfwm.org.uk

The EP Plan and accompanying EP Scheme have been prepared in partnership with Local Highway Authorities, local bus operators and other interested stakeholders.  The EP Plan covers the area of the West Midlands Combined Authority[1], excluding those areas of the existing Advanced Quality Partnership Schemes in Birmingham City Centre, Solihull Town Centre and Wolverhampton City Centre.  The EP Scheme aims to support the development of bus services on two corridors: A34(N) Walsall – Birmingham City Centre and A45 Birmingham Airport / Solihull – Birmingham City Centre.

The geographical areas covered by the EP Plan and Scheme are shown below.
