West Midlands Railway - Responsible travel starts here.

As the country slowly changes its lockdown measures, West Midlands Railway are asking you to only travel by train if your journey is necessary to help keep services for essential workers. 

They will be running the longest trains and the most frequent service they possibly can, but the current social distancing rules mean there are far fewer places for passengers than normal. 

If you have no alternative, then please read their travel guidelines which will help you understand how you need to prepare before you set off including: wear a face covering, carry hand sanitiser and wash your hands before/after your travel. 

Please remember – all train times and service frequency have changed, we need you to plan ahead and buy online and avoid busier times if you can.

The West Midlands region is thriving right now, and we’re here to help that continue. Our enormous investment programme will bring improved stations, better journeys and our entire train fleet will be upgraded. It’s not a quick job, trust us, if we could do it faster we would. Type your station in on this page to see what’s changing for the December timetable and beyond.​​​​​​

Key improvements happening over the next couple of years:

  • £700 million spent on new trains and sprucing up older ones
  • 100 new carriages on the Cross City Line (between Lichfield and Longbridge with the route extended to Bromsgrove)
  • Compensation if the train is delayed by more than 15 minutes
  • Free Wi-Fi 

There are so many other improvements to look forward to, including smart ticketing, smarter stations, better platform facilities, as well as more car and cycle parking spaces.
