Stationlink Bus Service, Linking Stations

Our thanks go to David Taylor and Chris Cook for providing the following information.

Stationlink operates with low-floor, easy access buses about every 8 minutes. The service links all the main city centre railway stations as well as the main National Express coach station at Digbeth. The order of stops is: Birmingham New Street, Snow Hill, Digbeth Coach Station, Birmingham Moor Street and then returns to Birmingham New Street.

This is a FREE service operating Monday to Saturday inclusive between 07.00 and 19.00 departing from Queens Drive (station forecourt, outside TK MAXX). It takes about 25 minutes to do a complete round trip. The buses are Solo low floor minibuses, which sound quite distinctive, as they have 4 cylinder Mercedes engines and they idle at a very low frequency and often whistle as well.

New Street

For the New Street stop, leave New Street Station via the South entrance and turn right. Cross the taxi road then turn left. Follow the wall on your right.

You pass:

The stop is about six paces beyond this advertising board, on your left.

Snow Hill

The Snow Hill stop is located right outside the station. Leave Snow Hill Station and proceed straight ahead until you reach the tactile paving for the crossing or the kerb and turn left. The stop is just past the crossing but can get blocked by taxis.

Moor Street

To locate the Moor Street stop, leave Moor Street Station, cross over to the island, then continue forward and cross again and turn right. The second bus stop is the one you need.
