Public Transport

Birmingham is brilliant for buses. There’s a huge network linking everyone to everything.

Network West Midlands has all the online timetables and fare information you need with easy ticket buying and route planning. Alternatively call 0871 200 22 33 for timetable information (Calls from landlines cast 10p per minute) or visit Centro’s many information points around the city.

More and more local buses have facilities such as low floors for easy access for wheelchair users and pushchairs. Birmingham buses can’t be hailed to be stopped; passengers wishing to board or leave a bus, should do so at an official bus stop.

Please remember that you need to give the exact fare to the driver as you board.


Swift Pay As You Go

The cashless way to travel. Simply load credit to your card to buy single, return and day tickets on the bus and tram.

No more hassle finding the exact change, just ask your bus or tram driver for your ticket when you board. With most bus operators accepting Pay As You Go and offering a discount, as well as discounted fares on Midland Metro, if you pay cash on the bus or tram then switch today to start saving.
