Hi there echoes
My daughter is in Year 7 at KEVIHS and takes the excellent public bus service 75/74 from the West Bromwich high street along Soho Road. It's quick and the buses come every 5 minutes or so. A good few girls from her year are on that bus - one travels all the way back to Dudley and another changes at the bus station to get to Walsall. There has been no trouble at all, apart from the day the buses got cancelled in the snow and three of them walked back the 3 miles or so - quite an adventure! West Brom isn't really on a Green Bus route to Handsworth.
Thank you for your reply. Its good to know that public bus service is safe and reliable.
From what I can gather, there is a green bus from west bromwich. Its route AH8. http://www.thegreenbus.co.uk/pdf/AH8_13-14_v0.3.pdf
Route takes church lane, express way, West bromwich ring way, Bull street..... and then carries on towards dudley zoo.
