West Midlands Metro dogs on trams trial to end – but dogs to still travel until final decision made

The Dogs on Trams pilot scheme which has allowed well behaved pet dogs to travel on West Midlands Metro services for a three month period is due to end on Wednesday 15th November. But before a final decision can be made it has been decided to allow the scheme to continue. This will also allow people to submit their feedback to be considered by West Midlands Metro ahead of a decision.

Anthony Stanley, Metro’s Head of Quality Health Safety and Environment, said: “While the trial has gone well, with plenty of opinions received from customers, it’s vital we take the wide range of views received into account before reaching our conclusions. It’s expected to take a few weeks to consider all the comments we’ve received, and we’re in a position to make an informed decision on the best way forward. Until then, well-behaved dogs will continue to be welcomed on board our trams.”

(You’d probably have to have a heart of stone not to be swayed in favour of the scheme if you look at the photos which accompany the news article on the West Midlands Metro website (https://westmidlandsmetro.com/dogs-on-trams-update/). How could you say no to those dogs?!)
