Service 316: Service History


Service 316

One of the oldest routes outside of Birmingham operated by the Birmingham and Midland Motor Omnibus Company Limited (BMMO—Midland “Red” Motor Services) was Service 37 running between Stourbridge, Kidderminster and Worcester. In the early 1920s, there was a two-hourly frequency running seven days a week, with journeys alternating between running via Blakedown or Broadwaters.

Service 37 was renumbered to Service ??? on Saturday 16th May 1925.

Service 316 (1928–1972)

Operated by Birmingham and Midland Motor Omnibus Company Limited

Service 315 was interworked with Service 316, both running between Worcester, Kidderminster and Stourbridge. The start and finish dates for these services are unknown, but they were already established by the end of 1929 and while Service 316 had been withdrawn by 1972, Service 315 continued until 1977 when it was withdrawn and replaced by Service 303.
