A BRAND new bus service taking in Earlswood, Cheswick Green, Monkspath and Solihull town centre got off to a roaring start last week.
The S14 service, run by Grosvenor Coaches, is offering residents of Earlswood their first proper bus route for many a year, enabling them to get to all the amenities they need in Cheswick Green and Solihull.
In addition, the new route will pass by Solihull Sixth Form College and Alderbrook and Tudor Grange School making it ideal for term time students.
“We have put this service in place after feedback from parents, schoolchildren and students who felt that the new S4 service wasn’t meeting their needs,” said Grosvenor director Dave Sterland.
“In addition it means that residents in Earlswood now have direct access to Solihull.”
However he added that to survive, the service would have to be used.
“It’s a commercial route, there is no subsidy and we are doing all this off our own backs - we are trying to meet the needs of residents and different service users but we need the customers!”
Grosvenor Coaches are based in Priory Road, Hall Green, for more information call 0121 474 6888.
