Innovation and future mobility
We need to trial new types of transport to help improve public transport. This is called future mobility.
Our innovation projects
We are working on several multi-million pound projects.
Midlands Future Mobility
We’re helping developers to test technology for autonomous vehicles. We’re installing new infrastructure around Coventry, Solihull and Birmingham to do this.
Future mobility zone
A future mobility zone is a way of testing new transport technology. We run the future mobility zone in the West Midlands.
Using 5G technology in transport
We’re working with West Midlands 5G (WM5G) to trial 5G to:
- make transport more efficient and reliable
- improve access to work, study and leisure
- improve the passenger experience with better services
