Transport Partner: National Express Coventry

About National Express Coventry

Just like culture, buses are for everyone

As the biggest bus operator in the West Midlands and one of the largest in the UK, National Express Coventry is passionate about the people and the communities it serves.

And just like culture, buses are for everyone.

National Express Coventry is proud to be a transport partner for City of Culture 2021, making it easier for residents and visitors to travel by bus and experience the wonderful events happening right here on our doorstep in Coventry.

With the safest buses, cheapest fares and an extensive network of bus routes linking our city with the wider West Midlands, hopping on a National Express Coventry bus is one of the easiest ways to enjoy our year as UK City of Culture - and it’s also the greenest choice.

If more of us catch the bus it means fewer cars on the roads, so less traffic congestion, safer roads and cleaner air for everyone to breathe. Did you know a double decker bus can take up to 75 cars off the road?

In 2020 National Express announced its ambition to become the UK’s most sustainable bus company, with its entire fleet of 1,600 buses becoming fully zero emission by 2030. It already has the greenest fleet outside of London, including 29 fully electric buses.

And by 2025, what was once just a dream will become reality, as the whole bus fleet here in our city will become zero emission. National Express Coventry is leading the way and helping our creative city to become the UK’s first All Electric Bus City.

In addition to operating most local buses across the West Midlands, the company’s accessible transport division - National Express Accessible Transport (NEAT) - also runs fully accessible minibuses for the Ring and Ride service, on behalf of Transport for West Midlands. The service is available for West Midlands residents who are unable to use conventional public transport due to mobility issues. Find out more about the service here:
