West Midlands Centro ring and ride service threatened

A minibus service used by about 60,000 people across the West Midlands every year could be scrapped as part of potential cost-cutting ideas.

Centro, which funds the ring and ride service, says it has to save £14m, almost 10% of its annual budget.

Other ideas include children paying two thirds of the adult bus fare rather than half fare, and stopping free tram and train travel for over 65s.

Campaigners say cutting free travel will cause "major problems" across the West Midlands.
