Metro Line One

Wolverhampton to Birmingham

The first Midland Metro line opened to the public in May 1999. A clean, electrically powered tram system, Midland Metro links key areas along a busy transport route serving local centres on the way.

The route now runs from Birmingham Grand Central (New Street rail station) serving new stops at Corporation Street, Bull Street and Snow Hill, through the Jewellery Quarter, Handsworth, The Hawthorns, West Bromwich, Wednesbury and Bilston to Wolverhampton.

They run every 6-8 minutes during the day, and every 15 minutes on evenings and Sundays. National Express operate the route on behalf of TfWM.
