Central Connect is a bus operator in the West Midlands. It is made up of the merger of Zak's, North Birmingham Busways and Birmingham Motor Traction. A deal was also signed in January 2008 for the completion of the purchase of Ludlows, Halesowen.

On March 3 2008, Central Connect purchased the Go West Midlands operations from Go-Ahead. [1] This has increased the buses owned by Central Connect by over 140, meaning that Central Connect now operates over 300 vehicles and becomes the second biggest operator in the West Midlands area after National Express West Midlands.
