The 57, 57A, 58 and 60 are bus routes in the West Midlands, United Kingdom.

Service 57 and 57A links Birmingham with Solihull Train Station, service 58 links Birmingham to Birmingham International Train Station and service 60 links Birmingham with Cranes Park. All services serve the Coventry Road/A45.


The 57/57A/58 and 60 (also known as the Coventry Road services) offer a combined daytime frequency of every 5 minutes along this busy corridor. In 2003, a batch of 15 Dennis Tridents were branded for this route however since then 4 of these have had to be de-branded due to different services requiring them. As a result, it is not unusual to see Plaxton Presidents and on occasion Optare Spectras working.

The services all serve the areas of Bordesley, Small Heath, Hay Mills, Yardley and Sheldon whilst serving numerous supermarkets, St. Andrews Football ground (Birmingham City Football club) and 4 different interchanges.

The Coventry Road services have largely been untouched by other operators, as they focus their attention on sister services on the Bristol Road.

National Express West Midlands maximum fare is £1.50 on these services.
