National Express West Midlands

Birmingham is well connected by Road Transport. There are two coach operators competing for business which have greatly reduced fares between Birmingham and London. Local bus users aren't so lucky with National Express West Midlands operating a near monopoly in the city.

There is no bus station in Birmingham and both local and country buses terminate in the city streets including Colmore Row, The Priory/Bull Street, Moor Street, Smallbrook, Paradise Circus and Upper Dean Street. National Express have their own coach station in Digbeth while Megabus services stop on Brunel Street which is off Navigation Street. As well as coaches and buses, Birmingham is awash with taxis and it's only late on a Saturday night that you might find it difficult flagging one down. There are though plenty of private hire cab firms that you can call instead.

There is a limited bus service in Birmingham during the night with several routes operating 24 hours including the service to Birmingham Airport.
