Kings Heath 50 bus service to become a 24 hours a day operation as 'night bus' resumes

more Kings Heath local news

Late night revellers will be able to catch the bus home to Kings Heath when the Number 50 bus timetable is extended next month.

An extended service by National Express West Midlands will see the local bus service to and from Birmingham city centre continue throughout the night.

At the moment the last 50 bus from the city centre leaves at eight minutes past midnight. From 20 July there will then be extra buses at 1.03am then hourly until 4.03am.  For people staying out really late, or workers heading for an ealry shift there will then be buses at roughly half hourly intervals until the normal daytime service starts at 6.20am.

The fares will be the same as during the daytime and bus passes will be valid

"This is very good news both in terms of an additional service but also in providing an inexpensive means for people to get home," comments local councillor Lisa Trickett. "The Council has regularly run campaigns warning people of the dangers of using unlicensed mini cabs. If people are struggling to find a way home they will know that there are regular night buses with the normal safety features."
