Midland Metro becomes West Midlands Metro

From Sunday June 24, the Midland Metro will become West Midlands Metro as services are taken over from National Express by Midland Metro Limited, a subsidiary of the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA). Midland Metro Ltd (MML) is a new operating company that has been set up and will be wholly owned by the WMCA.

MML has already taken the commercial decision to reduce fares on some single and return journeys by an average of around 10%, and to introduce a new Metro day ticket, to be available from day one of the new operation. These include:

No changes will be made to season and joint bus and tram tickets. Any season tickets purchased before Sunday June 24 will remain valid for travel until their expiry date.

The West Midlands Metro website will go live on Sunday June 24 and can be found at www.westmidlandsmetro.com. New social media channels are to be launched and customers will be able to follow @wmmetro on Twitter and WMMetro on Facebook.
