Bus Routes

St James Academy is only a short walk from the main Bus Station in Dudley. This is served by buses from all over the West Midlands. To plan your journey in full please use the Network West Midlands Journey Planner. Please also note that, during the work to redevelop the bus station, your journey's end point will have changed slightly but will still be within walking distance of the academy.

New Bus Station!
Did you know that Dudley is getting a new bus station? The out-of-date bus station is being replaced with a new interchange offering a modern, accessible environment and seamless connections between bus and Metro services.

Set to open in 2025, the interchange is just one in a series of major regeneration projects which are transforming Dudley town centre, including the Portersfield development. This also follows recent developments at the Very Light Rail Innovation Centre, Black Country Living Museum and the Black Country and Marches Institute of Technology.
