Midland Metro fares changes 2017

From 2nd January 2017 we will be changing our fares. Some key points include:

We're freezing the cost of off-peak travel. Adult off peak returns cost £3 & £4.50; with the day ticket at £5 (including unlimited tram and National Express bus travel after 9.30am, and anytime at weekends).

We are also freezing the City Hop at £1. These allow travel between Jewellery Quarter & Grand Central, Birmingham or Priestfield & Wolverhampton St Georges.

Group daysavers are also frozen at £10, and £7 after 6pm. These allow five people (or a family of two adults and up to four children) to travel on tram together on tram all day.

Every cash fare will still be cheaper when paying by Swift Pay As You Go smartcard.
