National Express West Midlands has proudly partnered with Edgbaston Stadium and will be running regular services to and from the city centre, on major match days and T20 evenings. 

To get you to Edgbaston in time for the match, our special service, the 501 Edgbaston shuttle, will depart from Smallbrook Queensway, close to the Bullring Link and just a short walk from New Street and Moor Street stations, and the New Street Metro tram link.

For anyone not familiar with Birmingham city centre, we'll have marshals in and around New Street Station to guide you to our shuttle stop.  

Purchasing your Shuttle Bus Ticket

Purchasing a shuttle bus ticket is easy; you can buy from the driver, add them to your basket when ordering your match tickets online, or you can collect them from the stadium! 

Paying on the day? Our drivers cannot give change so please carry the exact fare; alternatively we also accept contactless and mobile payments on all of our buses.

Already have a Daysaver ticket? Not a problem, ask the driver to upgrade your ticket to a Cricket Special when boarding, and you'll only need to pay the difference. 

(Travelcards, passes and Daysaver tickets are not valid on this service.)

Catching the Shuttle Bus

Shuttle buses will run at frequent intervals for 2 hours before the start of play, and for 1 hour after the end of play. Services running back to the city centre after the match will depart from the stadium Car Park.
