Important Travel Information Ahead of Planned Industrial Action

We would like to remind both home and away supporters that there are planned rail strikes which could affect their journey to the Banks’s Stadium this weekend.
The ongoing strikes are planned to take place on Saturday, 30th November affecting Walsall’s home match against Oxford United.

West Midlands Railway and London Western Rail, who have services that pass through Bescot Stadium station, will be affected.

On a strike day there will be fewer trains, some stations will not be served and some West Midlands Railway and London Northwestern Railway services will finish earlier than normal.

The West Midlands remains open for business. You can still get to where you need to go but you will need to check before you travel and leave more time:

Plan ahead: Strike day timetables will be made available a few days before a strike day but could change last minute. Plan your journey based on current information but remember to check it again before you travel by using National Rail Enquiries or by checking with your train operator.

Leave more time for journeys: Other train companies are due to run a normal Saturday service but will be busier than usual. Don’t aim for the last train home, get there early and expect to queue.

Stick to public transport: Other train operating companies are due to run as planned and the West Midlands Metro and West Midlands bus networks are a good alternative to train if you are travelling between Wolverhampton and Birmingham or making local journeys.

If you are planning to go Christmas shopping or visit a Christmas Markets: consider travelling into centres earlier and leaving earlier. The busiest time to travel around the West Midlands will be between 15:00-16:00.
