Troubled Lichfield bus route faces further problems as A2Z Travel buses face axe

The troubled Lichfield to Walsall 991 bus service could be dealt a new blow as the operator of the route may be forced to take their vehicles off the road.

A2Z Travel, which is the latest firm to run the service after Travel WM (now National Express West Midlands) had previously pulled out of the route.

But now a report in the Express & Star has claimed the firm’s fleet of buses could be off the road by March 31 unless the company can get permission ahead of a battle in the Court of Appeal.

A2Z Travel’s licence was revoked after faults were found in the company’s vehicles. The Walsall-based business had intended to keep their buses on the road until an appeal was heard, but that plan has been rejected by a Transport Tribunal.

Quite what the news will mean for the company’s various routes across the Midlands and the troubled 991 service is unclear, but hopefully a solution will be found so that passengers don’t suffer.
