National Express has announced it will be spending £26 million this year bringing new buses to the streets of the West Midlands, that is equivalent to one every four days.
A million pounds is being spent on a new control room which will open in March, designed to give passengers realtime information on their journies and any delays.
There will also be a new oyster-style smartcard system available as another option to pay for fares. All new additions, but some passengers are concerned about the rise in travel costs.
