I’m travelling on buses from the Grey Hound stadium in Perry Barr to the city centre to find out how the traffic has been affected on this route by the A38 tunnel closure.
Regional transport authority Centro, responsible for bus stops in the city, spends over 100,000 pounds annually on the maintenance of the Real Time Information (RTI) screens at bus stops. This budget covers about 1500 screens in the West Midlands region covered by Centro.
But are these screens functioning? I found out what the commuters think of them and what Centro has to say about the matter.
