Bus operator feesedit

Transport for West Midlands charge a fee to bus companies every time they use the bus station Stagecoach in Warwickshire believes the fee is too high and have as a result excluded their commercial bus routes from serving the bus station

Millennium Placeedit

From 9 June 2002 to 1 April 2006 the development of the nearby Millennium Place traffic-free public square which intersects the Fairfax Street/Hales Street/Trinity Street junction had effectively "cut off" access between the bus station and the rest of the City Centre and only a few bus routes served the bus station as a result, it became regarded as a white elephant and was threatened with closure On 2 April 2006 a controversial bus only link road cutting across Millennium Place was opened2 allowing many bus routes to start using the bus station again and protect its future, at this point National Express Coventry committed more bus services to the bus station than in the period prior to 9 June 2002
