Enhanced Partnership

We have worked closely with operators and local districts to create only the 2nd Enhanced Partnership in the country.  The overall plan covers all of the West Midlands metropolitan area and a specific scheme covers our initial Sprint corridors.  This will improve bus services for the region by specifying:

  • the type of bus an operator uses
  • bus branding, also called a livery
  • payment options
  • on-board facilities and technology
  • journey time performance
  • which stops the bus service uses

We have an enhanced partnership that covers the A34/A45 Sprint route between Walsall and Solihull.

We ran a consultation about enhanced partnerships in 2020. We asked for views on our enhanced partnership plan. We changed our plans after getting feedback. You can read more information about:
