Clean Air Zone
Vehicles such as this 1965 Midland Red D9 would no longer be able to run into Birmingham after Clean Air Zone set up. TRANSPORT MUSEUM, WYTHALL

A museum has launched a petition to save its vintage bus service, which is said to be under threat due to the planned Birmingham Clean Air Zone (CAZ).

The Transport Museum, Wythall holds an operator’s licence and runs service 750 to Birmingham city centre 11 times a year on special event days at its Worcestershire site. Birmingham City Council will introduce a CAZ covering all roads within the A4540 Middleway Ring Road from 1 July 2020. All diesel-engined buses entering the CAZ must comply or face a daily charge of £50 per vehicle per day.
