Standard Motor Company to City

via Warwick Road Railway Bridge


In 1957, this route ran through to Pool Meadow but, by 1962, it terminated at either Warwick Road Railway Bridge or Broadgate.  By calling at Warwick Road Railway Bridge it could serve Coventry Station for workers coming in from rugby, Kenilworth or Nuneaton. Before 1961, workers arriving from the direction of Birmingham would have alighted at Canley Halt and boarded the works service at either the Standard Gates or Coventry Radiator. After 1961, the route changed to run via Tile Hill Lane and divided at Earlsdon Library, with some services running via the Technical College.
