My ds had been travelling with the green bus to get to CHB for the last three years. When the service was cancelled he now takes a bus into B'ham city centre and then one to kings Heath, which drops him right outside CHB. He leaves roughly at 7.15 in the morning and gets to school at 8. 20 approx. we are in the wylde green/Sutton Coldfield area.
I was hugely in favour of the green bus and was so gutted when it was cancelled, yes it was definitely more expensive, I agree sasa that the alternative is MUCH cheaper, but for my peace of mind and my child's safety I was happy paying for the service.
I don't know what chance there is of the service being restarted but I would be definitely be happy to use it again ..esp since we're considering CHB for ds2!
Thanks for the info..
