What puzzles me is why there has never been any mention of this on Centro / Network West Midlands' websites. Even when the survey was available, it was never mentioned.
Anyway, we already know that Central Buses have registered commercial journeys on the 82, S2 and S3, which will presumably operate alongside any tendered journeys. Once this new network has been finalised, then the contracts will be put out to tender. Will be interesting to see if Central Buses also bid for tendered 82, S2/S3 services also, though I can see Diamond, Silverline and Johnsons tussling over these!
