Roads – Among the motorway connections for Birmingham are the M5 (via Bristol to Exeter), M6 (from Rugby to Gretna), M42 (connecting the East Midlands to the M5) and M54 (from Walsall to Telford). A network of A-roads links the city centre to outlying towns and cities such as Redditch, Solihull, Coventry, Kidderminster and Wolverhampton.

Railway – The city’s three main stations are New Street, Moor Street and Snow Hill. There are regular intercity services, mainly via New Street, with all three stations serving metropolitan connections throughout the West Midlands and further afield.

Buses – The bus route network is the city’s main public transport system, providing thorough coverage for many corners of the city and its outlying districts.

Trams – There is a tram service (“The Metro”) running between Birmingham Snow Hill station to Wolverhampton, via West Bromwich, Dudley and Bilston.

Airport – Birmingham International Airport is located just 6 miles from the city centre, off the M42/A45, and handles over 9 million passengers annually.
