Midland Metro

Trams 30 and 22 passing each other at the junction of Bull St and Corporation St in Birmingham
Midland Metro is a 13 mile long light rail line running between St George's tram station in Wolverhampton and Grand Central Station, next to Birmingham New Street railway station. The tramway is operated by National Express using a fleet of 21 Spanish built CAF Urbos 3 articulated trams. Most of the alignment of the route uses the former Birmingham Snow Hill to Wolverhampton Low Level line, with street running at either end, along Bilston Road in Wolverhampton and in the streets of Birmingham city centre.
