New Metro extension proves popular with passengers

It may only have been open for a couple of weeks but West Midlands Metro are already reporting on the popularity of the new extension to Wolverhampton Railway Station. The line (which includes two new stops) opened on Sunday 17th September and although there have been some teething problems with signalling problems West Midlands Metro are keen to shout out about the extension as it gives new journey opportunities for passengers.

Sophie Allison, the Interim Managing Director at West Midlands Metro, said: “We’ve already received plenty of positive feedback from customers following the successful launch of services on Sunday morning. They really appreciate the added convenience offered by the new stops, and with services up to every 10 minutes, the additional services offer a host of benefits for both new and existing customers.”

“Visitors travelling from outside the area by bus or train can simply hop on a tram to complete their journey to some of the region’s top cultural and sports venues. Local communities will also benefit from an even better-connected transport network. With a host of flexible and affordable ticket options available, taking the tram also offers excellent value for money for everyone!”

Currently all services on the West Midlands Metro are due to run to Wolverhampton Railway Station with the original line to Wolverhampton St George’s closed whilst works take place. Later this autumn services should alternate between the two termini.
