Routes 340 and 341 are two interlinked bus services operated by National Express West Midlands in the Borough of Walsall.

RouteEdit

The routes follow the same route up until Lane Head Bridge, when the 340 takes the direct road into Willenhall and the 341 goes around the nearby estates before rejoining the road at a later point.

Once at Willenhall, National Express West Midlands Services, switch routes, so that the bus which has just arrived as the 340 will depart as a 341 and vice versa.

A2Z Travel also operate on the route, but their service 341 is numbered 341E and terminates in New Invention.

Each company operates each route on a half hourly frequency, so combined each company gives a frequency of 15 minutes and when that is combined with A2Z Travel gives a frequency of 7/8 minutes.

From the end of May 2008 A2Z Travel will no longer operate service 340 and will operate service 341E to a half-hourly frequency. [1]

Evening services are numbered 342 and operated by Diamond Bus. These services go the same route for the majority of the journey, but do not serve Bentley, Lodge Farm or New Invention and instead serve Beechdale.
