The club have released the following information on two new bus services for the Villa faithful:

Services AV5 and AV6 will start at the Villa v Sunderland match next weekend.

These new routes include a service from Aldridge & Streetly and a service from Hinckley, Bedworth and Nuneaton.

Here is a look at all routes available:

AV1 will pick passengers up at Tamworth train station two hours before kick-off.
AV2 will collect two hours before kick-off at Knowle bus station before pick-ups at Solihull and Olton train stations.
AV3 will pick up at Redditch bus station (Stand F) two hours before kick-off with a new second stop in Kings Norton from the Man on the Moon pub.
AV4 will pick up from Bromsgrove bus station two and a half hours before kick-off and then will travel to Forest pub in Lickey End before a stop at Marlbrook in Catshill and a new pick-up from the Rose and Crown pub in Rubery.

NEW SERVICES FROM MARCH 22

AV5 will pick-up at Aldridge’s Elms pub two hours before kick-off before stopping at the Hardwick Arms, followed by Compton Road bus stop, opposite Farmer John’s pub.
AV6 will depart two and a half hours before kick-off from Hinckley bus station before further collections at Nuneaton and Bedworth bus stations.

The drop off location will be outside Villa Park. The buses will then collect passengers 300 yards up from the Holte pub in Witton Lane, 30 minutes after the game, and return travellers to their original stops.

The price of a Villa Special return is £3.00 (no concessions). We advise fans to pre-book their seat by contacting the consumer sales department on 0800 612 0970.
