For those customers purchasing monthly or term passes on services that will no longer be operated by Diamond, please be aware that Diamond tickets and passes will not be valid for travel on new operators services. We recommend that customers do not purchase monthly passes for these services after 26th January as you will not get the full period of travel time purchased.

Weekly Diamond tickets are available for all services on-bus, online and via the app as M-tickets, nBus passes can also be purchased from Network West Midlands, which will be valid for travel on the new operators service after the transition date.

If you have purchased a Diamond Month or Termlink pass which you can no longer use, Please return the pass to our customer services department after 25th February for a pro-rata refund.
