A spokesperson for the company said the changes, which look set to come into effect around February 22nd - 23rd, are focused on making services more reliable.

Phil Medlicott, managing director at Stagecoach Midlands said: “We are aiming to improve the reliability of services in February and want as many people to provide their comments as possible”

“We want people to see this as a positive change to help combat the worsening congestion we see on our roads.

"The journeys which we are considering removing carry only one or two passengers.

"While we don’t want to inconvenience anyone it doesn’t make sense to run buses capable of carrying around 60 people for so few."

Passengers are being asked to visit the company’s website at www.stagecoachbus.com/promos-and-offers/midlands/your-views-feb-2020 and leave their feedback.

The deadline for leaving feedback is January 5.
