#AYearOfBuses 297: Platinum Birmingham – Walsall
Today on #AYearOfBuses, it’s the 997 – the West Midland’s highest-numbered bus route.
…and quite possibly, one of the highest-numbered bus routes in the country? We’re certainly struggling to think of any higher!
The 997 is one of National Express West Midland’s Platinum-spec premium bus routes, featuring 4G WiFi, high-backed seating, next stop announcements and more. It links Walsall with Pheasey, Perry Barr and Birmingham city centre, and was one of the very first Platinum routes to be launched.
Look who’s talking
