Sprint bus priority corridor

We are creating a bus priority corridor called Sprint. This will link Walsall to Solihull and Birmingham Airport in one continuous route. 

Cross-city bus routes are expected to begin using the route in 2023. 

Find out more about what exactly Sprint is.

Developing Sprint

Phase 1 of Sprint is now complete. The first phase was delivered on time and to budget and included extended bus lanes and priority signalling.

We're now moving on to Phase 2, which will complete the Sprint corridor to Walsall and Solihull. This work will begin in 2024.

Services using the corridor now benefit from enhanced bus priority measures and an improved passenger experience, including:

  • more reliable, regular and predictable journey times
  • journey times savings of up to 22% on key routes
