Changes are set to be made in 2020 for bus routes in and around Leamington, Warwick and Kenilworth, with some services facing the axe.

Stagecoach Midlands is now looking for passenger views on upcoming network changes.

Stagecoach Midlands said the changes - which come into effect around February 22-23 - are "focused on making services more reliable with a few late evening journeys removed, which carry very few customers".

Passengers are being asked to visit the company’s website at https://www.stagecoachbus.com/promos-and-offers/midlands/your-views-feb-2020 and leave their feedback.

Phil Medlicott, managing director at Stagecoach Midlands, said: “We are aiming to improve the reliability of services in February and want as many people to provide their comments as possible”

“We want people to see this as a positive change to help combat the worsening congestion we see on our roads.

"The journeys which we are considering removing carry only 1 or 2 passengers. While we don’t want to inconvenience anyone it doesn’t make sense to run buses capable of carry around 60 people for so few”
