The 66 and 66A are bus routes in the West Midlands County, United Kingdom.
Service 66 links Erdington with Ladywood in the daytime, whilst 66A links Sutton Coldfield and Ladywood in the evenings. This service is the ONLY cross-city service in Birmingham.
- Summer 2007 - Service 66A is re-routed down Corporation Street in the city centre in the direction of Ladywood
Service 66 currently operates every 15 minutes during the daytime, Monday - Saturday. This service does not run a evening service; As a result, service 66A takes over and provides cover on the route every 30 minutes during the evenings and on Sundays. The 'A' denotes the service going to Sutton Coldfield under contract to Centro, providing cover for National Express West Midlands daytime service 111 (Sutton Coldfield to Erdington). Another deviation to service 66A is that vehicles going towards Ladywood have to go via Corporation Street in the city Centre, yet going back to Sutton Coldfield uses the same route as the 66.
Service usually uses Mercedes-Benz O405N with no other types of vehicles used on it due to this type of vehicle being the only one at Bordesley depot. Service 66/A is the only cross-city service in Birmingham seeing as the last cross city service 46/X was withdrawn in 2007 and split into two different routes. A possible reason behind this was due to congestion in Birmingham city centre affecting the punctuality of the service.
For this service only two Mercedes-Benz O405N were branded for the X-City, despite the PVR requiring more vehicles.
National Express West Midlands maximum fare is £2.00 on these services.
