  1. The X3 from Hill Hook to Birmingham is notoriously unreliable already – heaven knows how adding this extra journey time to Lichfield is going to work out! Have you actually assessed how many passengers will actually use the route? Can’t imagine why it needs to be a half hourly service. The current X12 is seldom full and the route is only really used by pass holders in the middle of the day. I predict this won’t last long!

  2. Hi there, when will the timetable be available for the new X3 service from Lichfield to Birmingham and being in Staffordshire, for the time being, will we be able to use our bus passes before 09.30 in Lichfield ?.
