Alternatives to Tram

There are a lot of ways to get around even if there are disruptions to your normal route

Plan your alternative journey by bus or train in times of disruption to the tram network. 

Use the journey planner below to select the stations you would normally travel to and from and we’ll calculate your best alternative.

This tool will only plan journeys between two Metro stations, if you require a more detailed door to door journey plan please visit our full journey planner.

Please check ticket acceptance arrangements with your operator as they can vary.

West Midlands Metro generally introduces ticket acceptance in times of severe disruption with National Express West Midland buses, and sometimes with West Midlands Railway trains. This is normally announced on the West Midlands Metro Twitter feed, which is also where you can find the latest information.

If the journey planner suggests an operator not covered by ticket acceptance you may have to pay for these journeys
