Ambition 6: Excellent public transport to the region and beyond
We have excellent and affordable public transport that connects us to all local centres and to jobs in Birmingham, Wolverhampton, the airport and the wider West Midlands.
Sandwell is well placed at the heart of the West Midlands transport system. We must make sure people have efficient and cost-effective ways to get to job and leisure opportunities.
Around 30,000 Sandwell residents already commute to Birmingham every day.
The new West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) aims to improve links both within the region and into the national network via HS2.
By 2030, Sandwell will be reaping the rewards from better transport links across the region and growth in Birmingham, the rest of the Black Country and beyond.
We’ll also be making the most of the new Metro line, which includes linking Dudley Port station with Wolverhampton via Wednesbury.
