West Midlands Trains will provide their usual hourly service, with an extra carriage to ensure all services operate with 3 carriages on Sunday.
More information and booking details about trains throughout the country can be found at www.nationalrail.co.uk.
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.
A number of bus services operate close to the Coventry Building Society Arena, both from Coventry city centre and also other areas.
On Demand Bus
West Midlands Bus On Demand is a new type of bus service that anyone travelling in the Coventry area can use. It does not follow a specific route.
Instead, you book a journey and a bus will pick you up at a time you choose.
