Coventry Depot

33 Sandy Lane

Historically, The City of Coventry had their own municipal public transport company to run all local bus services within the City, and thus there was no great demand for Birmingham and Midland Motor Omnibus Company Limited (BMMO—Midland “Red” Motor Services) to open a depot there. However, in the early 1920s, BMMO introduced a number of routes between Coventry and other large towns and cities in the area, and a small garage was rented to house vehicles for these routes. The garage was closed within three years as large BMMO depots in other towns along these routes came into operation.
