Midland Metro concession not to be awarded again Midland Metro concession not to be awarded again

The concession to operate trams in Birmingham and Wolverhampton will not be awarded again when the present contract with National Express Group ends in October next year. Instead, control of Midland Metro will pass to Transport for West Midlands, which said the change to public control will save taxpayers ‘millions of pounds’. Metro staff will be transferred to TfWM. National Express said it was ‘disappointed’ but promised a smooth handover.
