All West Midlands Metro services suspended until further notice

Due to an operational issue, there will be no service in operation from today until further notice.

During inspections, new bodywork cracks have been identified on some older trams which require additional checks to be carried out by the manufacturer. A spokesperson said:

“We are working alongside the manufacturer, to restore services as quickly as possible. While this situation is ongoing, we are committed to keeping our customers moving.

“We understand the frustration many people will feel at this latest interruption to services, and sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.”

Metro tickets and passes will be valid on National Express bus services 9, 12/12A, 13/13A, 23, 24, 74, 79, 82, 87, 126, X8 and X10 as well as West Midlands Railway and Avanti train services between Wolverhampton and Birmingham
