Freedom of information


Transport for West Midlands is the transport arm of the West Midlands Combined Authority, promoting and developing public transport across the West Midlands. 

On Friday 17 June 2016 the West Midlands ITA and Centro/PTE were dissolved. The West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) replaces and builds on work to date of both organisations. Transport is now led by Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) - the transport arm of the Combined Authority.

TfWM provides Travel Information Centres at Coventry, Birmingham New Street and Wolverhampton and works with districts and partners who provide centres at Walsall and West Bromwich.

We work in partnership with operators in the West Midlands (under the Network West Midlands brand) to develop integrated ticketing that meets customers’ needs. WMCA also provides a range of concessionary fares for children, the elderly and disabled travellers.

TfWM does not directly operate any of the trains which serve the region, or operate any buses. However, we do pay for socially necessary services to operate that are not profitable - such as those in the early morning, in the evening or on a Sunday.

TfWM is responsible for promoting and developing Midland Metro, which it owns, but it does not operate any services.
