Midland Metro opened in 1999 and runs between Birmingham and Wolverhampton serving 26 stops including West Bromwich, Wednesbury and Bilston. It has recently been extended to serve Birmingham City Centre at Grand Central Tram Stop for New Street Station, and further extensions are scheduled to be built over the next ten years.
The trams have recently been upgraded meaning we now offer a state-of-the art light rail system that provides safe, comfortable, smooth and quick transport across the West Midlands. It is also environmentally friendly as power is generated by overhead electrical wires which supply a 750 volt direct current to the tram meaning they are zero pollution at point of use - helping to improve the air quality and noise levels.
Trams have easy access and level boarding to ensure ease of use for people with mobility difficulties as well as those with pushchairs, buggies and luggage. All trams and tram stops comply with the latest accessibility regulations.
