Historically, The City of Coventry had their own municipal public transport company to run all local bus services within the City, and thus there was no great demand for Birmingham and Midland Motor Omnibus Company Limited (BMMO—Midland “Red” Motor Services) to open a depot there. However, in the early 1920s, BMMO introduced a number of routes between Coventry and other large towns and cities in the area, and a small garage was rented to house vehicles for these routes. The garage was closed within three years as large BMMO depots in other towns along these routes came into operation.
- Garage leased by Birmingham and Midland Motor Omnibus Company Limited (BMMO—Midland “Red” Motor Services) from a firm of Engineers.
- Opened on Tuesday 1st March 1921.
- Used to house vehicles for the Coventry to Leicester service, starting from Saturday 4th June 1921, as BMMO did not have a garage in Leicester at this time.
- Allocation at the end of 1922 of 6 Tilling-Stevens TS3 single-deck service buses and a Tilling-Stevens TTA2 as a spare vehicle.
- Closed on Saturday 29th September 1923, with the last remaining services transferring to Leamington Spa depot and Nuneaton (Coton Road) depot.
