Driving

West Midlands by car

We’re not here just to help you catch the bus, train and tram.

We also support organisations to deliver a more efficient and reliable road network for car drivers too.

We recognise some people, need to, or prefer to, drive, and we want to be the same source of reliable information we are for bus train and tram as for car journeys you make. Lots of investment is coming to the regions transport network between now and 2026 which means you will need to plan ahead to avoid roadworks and in some cases your journey by car might be delayed or disrupted, more than once.   

However we do have some great ideas to help you keep moving. We promise to provide you with the very latest information on roadworks taking place in the region and suggest alternative routes and options. We’ll also give you ideas on how you can make small changes to improve your daily commute.

And we want to share with you some of the exciting work going on behind the scenes to improve our regions roads including future technologies and autonomous vehicles.
