Midland Metro

The Midland Metro is a light-rail or tram line in the West Midlands of England between Birmingham and Wolverhampton via West Bromwich and Wednesbury. It is owned and promoted by Centro, and operated by West Midlands Travel Limited, a subsidiary of the National Express Group (NEG), under the brand name Travel Midland Metro (TMM).

It opened in 1999, mostly using a disused railway trackbed. In Birmingham, it terminates at Snow Hill station. An extension into Birmingham city centre, was approved in 2012, and is expected to be operational by 2015. Various other extensions, including entirely new lines, have been proposed but not yet approved.
