Changes to the West Midlands Bus on Demand service
On 23 January 2023, Ring & Ride and West Midlands Bus on Demand are merging to create one service in the Coventry area. Instead of running two smaller services side by side, we are merging them to create one larger, more efficient service.
Your fare will now be based on the distance instead of the time of day.
Distances are calculated as a straight line from A to B, and the distance charged is not dependent on the route the bus takes.
The price of your journey will be confirmed when you book, and your fare will remain the same regardless of how many stops or passengers there are.
You will be able to pay by cash on the bus or by card once your journey is complete.
