Bye bye Travel West Midlands

New logos for West Midlands buses

You may have noticed in recent weeks that the old Travel West Midlands logo, the name Birmingham travellers associated with their buses for twenty years, is no more.

Its retirement coincides with the adoption of the new National Express West Midlands livery. The change is also in line with the company's recent relocation from London to Birmingham, and follows the plan, as announced in July 2007, to integrate all National Express subsidiaries into one single division, now known as National Express UK Limited.

In the meantime, enjoy the offer (available until 31 May 2008) of a discount on National Express coaches when you present a 4-week Adult Travel card. But before you get over excited, just be aware that it's only valid via the direct debit scheme. There had to be a catch...


That scumbag of a scally (or shall I say "ned"), Stephen Price from Paisley, Scotland, who stabbed his victim to death with a knife and a screwdriver 80 times, owned up to it, and then posed next to the corpse for a triumphant picture was told "he must spend at least 15 years in prison". The cynical in me knows that in the language of the British justice system that probably means 7 years. Obviously a mandatory life sentence was too much to ask wasn't it?
