Central Buses are owned by CEN Group Ltd. We are an independent company which is owned, managed and staffed by local people from our base in Perry Barr, Birmingham. We were established in 2003 and now operate a fleet of twenty three modern buses on a network of local routes and school contracts across the West Midlands and into Staffordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire.

We pride ourselves in providing a high quality, safe, friendly, reliable and value for money service - every time.




We offer a selection of ticket types and fares that are excellent value for money. Whilst most things in life continue to increase in price such as fuel, more and more people are leaving the car at home and switching to us. Our weekly and monthly tickets cost from just £1.87 per day (discounts available for under 16’s), so why not treat yourself and let us take the strain out of commuting or shopping?

All of our friendly drivers are able to provide change should you not have the exact fare with you. We accept English National Concessionary Bus Passes on all of our buses from 0930 Monday to Friday and all day at weekends and we also accept all valid Network and NBus tickets. Please have your pass ready when you get on the bus - our vehicles have recently been fitted with state of the art ticket machine equipment whereby you may also have to touch your pass onto the smart-card reader situated next to the driver. If in doubt, please ask your driver and he or she will be happy to assist !

We have invested heavily in a modern fleet of vehicles which are regularly cleaned both inside and out. The majority of our fleet are low floor 'easy access' vehicles and have a pushchair / wheelchair zone on board. All of our fleet is fitted with the latest electronic information displays and CCTV is fitted throughout for your comfort and safety. We are also continuing to invest in the latest GPS tracking equipment so we can monitor our services and ensure that they reach you on time.
