Previous Event Work

Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games

The largest event ever staged in the Midlands, the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games saw over 5,000 athletes, 14,000 volunteers and over 5 million visitors flock to the city.

Johnsons Coaches supported the event with high-quality transport, from shuttle services and rail replacement services for Transport for West Midlands, transporting hundreds of spectators to the events, to transporting athletes with our client Corporate & Sporting Events Management.

We were also involved in transporting media crews to Alexander Stadium, and supporting West Midlands Growth Company, transporting visitors to the events at Alexander Stadium, Sandwell Aquatics Centre, Edgbaston Cricket Ground, The NEC, and even shuttling the catering crew from the University of Birmingham to catering sites around the region.

Running from 28 July and 8 August 2022, the Games were a huge success for the region, and the whole Johnsons team were proud to be involved in such a high-profile event. The atmosphere was brilliant, the whole city was buzzing, and we were thrilled to see the Midlands come together for an incredible Commonwealth Games.

Why should you hire a coach for events? 

The events industry is back! There is nothing quite like the buzz of an event. Big or small, events are a great place for networking, advertising, and boosting the morale of your hardworking employees. Depending on the event intentions; event coach hire could be your perfect solution for large people movements.  

Advantages of event coach hire 


If you are taking several groups of people to the same event, it can bring people together and create a positive energy. Corporate events with a mix of businesses being collected and transported to the venue is a great place to start the networking! Maybe it’s for a sporting event, a group of people supporting the same team travelling together to Wembley for a cup final! Start the experience with likeminded people. 

Less stressful travel 

Travelling to an event can be stressful, especially if it is anticipated to have a high volume of traffic. Being stuck in traffic in a place you’ve never been to before is stressful, event coach hires allow you to relax and enjoy the scenery. 

Cost effective 

If multiple participants are traveling from the same place, then they will all be using their own cars or expensive train tickets. This could be a logistical nightmare as more cars means more traffic. It also will lead to much more expensive mileage claims for your business.  

More environmentally friendly 

One of the more important factors, all businesses have an obligation to be greener, in light of climate change. A coach is perfect as it is one vehicle that can transport up to 75 people, depending on the coach you need, which drastically reduces your carbon footprint. What’s more, many of Johnsons’ coaches have Euro 6 engines, an investment that helps support the introduction of Low Emission Zones recently introduced.
