A double-decker bus due to be scrapped is to be transformed into a homeless shelter.
The vehicle, which has been donated by National Express after 19 years of service, will be put in locations in central Birmingham to help tackle homelessness.
The redundant double-decker - currently located in Stratford-upon-Avon - will be given a £50,000 facelift, paid for by donations.
All 75 seats will be ripped out and replaced with beds to accommodate nine rough sleepers. A food preparation area, eating space, private consultation room, toilet and shower will also be included.
The project has been created by members of Birmingham's Rotary Club.
Renovation work will take around six weeks, the double decker will then be brought back to the city for use as a shelter.
Trustees behind the Rotary Shelter Bus project will soon meet with Birmingham City Council officials to discuss the project.
Previously, redundant vehicles were donated to local schools who went on the convert the buses into classrooms, libraries and activity centres.
