TRAIN TRAVEL:

We have been provided the following information from West Midlands Trains:

Coventry City host Birmingham City this Saturday. As a result, services between Birmingham and Coventry will be very busy 2 hours before and after the match.

If you’re travelling to the match, please keep the below in mind:

  1. Services between Birmingham and Coventry will be much busier than usual
  2. Services between Coventry and Coventry Arena station are limited to an hourly service. You’re advised to use alternative travel from Coventry station
  3. Queuing systems may be in place at stations during busier times, so please allow extra time for your journey
  4. Check your train times in advance at wmr.uk/plan

Why can’t more trains be provided between Coventry and Coventry Arena?

Infrastructure restrictions on the Leamington Spa – Nuneaton line combined with platform capacity at Coventry station means that services on the line remain hourly.
