Service X93: Service History

Introduction

Service X93

Service X93 running between Birmingham, Kidderminster and Worcester was first introduced by Midland Red Omnibus Company Limited (MROC) as part of their “Wendaway” Viable Network Project (VNP) on Saturday 5th November 1977. The service ran ever hour during the daytime, inter-worked with Service X92 to give a 30-minute frequency on the Birmingham to Kidderminster section of the route.

Service X93 operated by Midland Red (West) Ltd. (1981–2002)

Midland Red (West) Limited started trading on Sunday 6th September 1981 and Service X93 was one of the services inherited from Midland Red Omnibus Company Limited (MROC), which had ceased trading at the end of operations on the previous day.

From the late 1980s Service X94 was extended past Kidderminster to Hartlebury, Ombersley, Hallow and Worcester, running as a variation to Service X93.

By September 1991, Service X93 had been cut back to only run between Birmingham and Kidderminster (The Walshes), and Service X94 was withdrawn. Service X93 was withdrawn on Sunday 1st September 2002.
