Hi Live in Manchester and want to travel to Birmingham on am of race. Trains don't get there in time for 1000 start. Anyone know of a coach / minibus going from Manchester area? Any other bright ideas? Many thanks

Megabus run at 06:15 service from the Shudehill Interchange in Manchester, arriving at Colmore Circus in Birmingham at 08:45.

Colmore Circus is around a 10 to 15 minute walk from the start and the baggage drop at the National Indoor Arena so you should have plenty of time to get ready once you get off the coach ahead of the start at 10 am. is the website.

Hope that helps!

I've got the same problem from the other direction, except no megabus either. Think Im going to have to go on motorbike, which not very impressed about as always end up so tight after sitting on it for more than a few minutes.
