National Express Announces New Routes

National Express announces new route between Yorkshire, Birmingham and London : Coach firm continues investment in the network to make even more journeys available for passengers

National Express is increasing its coach network coverage across the UK, including a new overnight service from Bradford to London.

Ahead of the summer holidays, the UK’s largest scheduled coach operator has introduced a new daily 466 service connecting major cities across Yorkshire with Birmingham Airport, Heathrow Airport and London. Departing from Bradford, the 466 service calls at Leeds, Sheffield, Chesterfield, Derby, Birmingham Airport, and Heathrow Airport before heading to London.

The latest investment in providing reliable, affordable and sustainable coach travel connecting cities, towns and airports follows a continued surge in customers turning to National Express during 2023 and provides savvy travellers with even more great value options for travel.

It comes as the company celebrates a year of passenger growth, with over 19 million customers travelling on its coach network in 2023 – a 25 per cent increase in passengers, up from 15 million in 2022. 

National Express also continues to invest in its fleet, with 150 brand new vehicles expected to hit the roads this year, meaning customers will be able to enjoy a comfortable and relaxing journey to hundreds of destinations across the country.

Ed Rickard, Network Director for National Express UK and Ireland, said:

“With continued investment in our coach network, including the introduction of this new 466 service connecting major cities across Yorkshire with Birmingham Airport, Heathrow Airport and London, we are making it even easier for savvy travellers to save their money for their holidays, with convenient, great value travel and a guaranteed seat. 

“More and more people are choosing to travel with National Express as a reliable, affordable and sustainable way to get around, and we’re responding by investing in new vehicles and services while delivering a brilliant customer experience for a relaxing, comfortable journey.”
