West Midlands Trains

Travelling to the District

Travelling by train

With more people returning to work, and shops, pubs and restaurants re-opening, West Midlands Railway are welcoming passengers back. But, now more than ever, it is vital we all travel responsibly.

To help you travel safely, West Midlands Railway are running as many trains as they can, with as many carriages as possible to maximise space on board. They have also stepped up cleaning on trains and at stations, using the latest antiviral equipment and techniques. You can also do your bit, by maintaining your distance whenever possible, buying your tickets online, travelling at a quieter time, and allowing extra time for your journey as station layouts may have changed. But, most importantly, wear a face covering at all times – unless you are exempt. Responsible travel starts here.


Parking in the district

During lockdown, on-street parking around the district was suspended, however as of June 15, all street parking restrictions are being enforced once again. On-street parking in the area is limited, however there are a number of privately run car parks either located in the district or a short walking distance, including B4 Parking, NCP Birmingham High Street and Snow Hill Multi-Storey
