Park and Ride

We provide over 9,000 car parking spaces across the West Midlands. They are at train stations and tram stops.

Park and ride helps reduce congestion. Drivers can park their cars and get public transport for the rest of their journey.

Find out more about how to use our park and ride sites. You can report a problem with a park and ride site online.

What we’re doing to expand park and ride

We are expanding our park and ride sites. We are also building new ones. We work with local councils to do this.

We are planning to expand park and ride sites at:

  • Tile Hill train station
  • Whitlocks End train stations

We’re also planning to build new park and ride sites at:

  • Dudley Port train station
  • Sandwell and Dudley train station
  • Tame Bridge Parkway train station
  • Minworth for Sprint

We’re upgrading existing park and ride sites with:

  • better lighting
  • electric vehicle charging
  • cycle hubs

We’re also building temporary park and ride sites for the Commonwealth Games in 2022.

Longbridge Park and Ride

Longbridge Park and Ride is our new £7 million park and ride site. It has 629 car park spaces across 6 floors.

People can park here to catch trains or buses to Birmingham city centre. Longbridge train station is nearby as well as several bus stops. It is easy to get to from the M5, M42 and A38.

The park and ride has:

  • lifts
  • disabled parking
  • motorbike parking
  • electric vehicle charging
  • bike shelters
  • CCTV
  • energy saving lighting
  • emergency help points
  • reservable parking spaces
  • Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR)

You have to pay to park. We have made this easy by providing several methods of payment, including Swift. You only need to pay when you leave the car park.

If you use Swift Go, we can charge you based on when you enter and leave the park and ride.

This project was part-funded with £1.8 million from Greater Birmingham and Solihull LEP and Midlands Engine.
