What we do

We want the West Midlands to have a world-class transport system. To make this happen, we’re investing £5 billion in nearly 200 transport projects between now and 2026. We are working with:

  • 7 local authorities
  • Network Rail
  • Highways England
  • the Department for Transport
  • bus and train operators

Our bus, rail and tram projects will help improve public transport. We are also working on transport infrastructure. We want to encourage people to use public transport instead of driving.

Park and ride

Park and ride helps reduce congestion. Drivers can park their cars and use public transport for the rest of their journey. We provide over 9,000 parking spaces across the region. We’re also expanding park and ride sites.

Cross-city bus routes

We’re developing cross-city bus routes. This will make it easier to travel on buses. It will reduce the need to change buses in city centres. Find out more about these routes.

HS2 and local connectivity

HS2 is the high-speed railway linking London, the Midlands, the North and Scotland. We want to make the most of the opportunities it will provide. Find out more about what we’re doing.
