What is Signature? 
Signature is the premium bus service network operated by brought to you by Diamond Bus. It began in 2010 with just 4 vehicles operating the S2A&C and S3 routes in Solihull. 

We designed our Signature brand around the aim to provide more than just a bus service, we want the passenger to experience more with Signature. Its our aim to make people think differently about the perception of bus travel and encourage car users onto public transport without compromising on quality. 

Premium service enhancements make a journey with Signature a more enjoyable experience. All Signature buses are modern and attractive with comfortable leather seating. Passengers can also benefit from the use of our free on-board wi-fi and real time information*.

Cleaner, Greener Buses...
Increasing the shift to public transport and reducing the reliance on the car is a key objective behind the Signature network. We also believe that the environmental benefit of public transport is a key motivator for people in the area moving to bus services. This why all Signature vehicles are fitted with modern efficient Euro 5 or Euro 6 engines.

Making travel easier for everyone...
At Signature we believe everyone in the community should be able to access public transport, which is why Signature vehicles are low floor and easily accessible to those who are less mobile and are wheelchair and buggy friendly.

Smarter Ticketing...
At Signature we are keen to develop accessible and convenient ticketing options for passengers too. You can buy passes for our services which are valid across the wider Diamond Bus network. As well as being available on-bus, selected tickets and passes are also available on-line and, through our M-ticketing App, on passengers smartphones at the touch of a button while they’re on the move!

Diamond and Signature Buses are also the first operator in the West Midlands to be able to offer Contactless Payment across our whole fleet of vehicles. Tickets upto the value of £30 can now be purchased on-board with any Contactless Payment Card or Apple Pay.

Dedicated to customer service and passenger care...
Keeping our passengers happy is our main focus so we created a service charter outlining the standards of service you should expect from us. Read about the assurances we offer you in our Signature Service Charter.

The Signature Network continues to grow and develop...
Today, the Signature network now encompasses 6 services across Solihull and 14 branded Signature Buses and we hope to continue this growth in the future.
