West Midlands by tram

Bigger, better – and more frequent

This is tram travel as it should be. We’ve invested in a new fleet for Midland Metro so your journeys are faster, more reliable and completely integrated with all the other ways you get around the West Midlands. They run every 6-8 minutes during the day, and every 15 minutes on evenings and Sundays.

Your Metro runs from Wolverhampton to Birmingham, so it’s perfect for getting to Bilston, Wednesbury, West Bromwich, The Hawthorns and the Jewellery Quarter. We’ have extended the network to Bull Street – perfect for connecting to the city centre more easily.
