National Express Coventry Route 42 is a bus service in the city of Coventry in the West Midlands region of England.

The City Centre - Cannon Park section of the route is operated with support from Centro.


  • Prior to 4 April 2004 - Route 42 (which came into existence c.1992) operated between City Centre and Cannon Park only. Another route numbered 49 (which came into existence c.1989) operated between Coundon and Coventry Rail Station via Coventry City Centre.
  • From 4 April 2004 - Routes 42 and 49 were merged into one route numbered 42, this alleviated the duplication where both routes overlapped between Coventry City Centre and Coventry Rail Station. The time saved here was used to add running time and improve reliability for the route between City Centre and Cannon Park.
