Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) is part of the West Midlands Combined Authority. We work with bus and train operators to make sure that public transport is:
- accessible for everyone
We own and run West Midlands Metro, which is the region’s tram service. We also run the Swift smartcard. This flexible, cashless ticket is the most-used outside London.
We’re responsible for monitoring and improving road safety in the West Midlands. We look after the 23 busiest routes in the region. This is called the Key Route Network.
We also manage the Regional Transport Coordination Centre for the West Midlands. The centre monitors our transport network. It will help keep the region moving during major events like the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
