Return to school travel advice
We appreciate that the return to school in September will be under very different circumstances. With greater numbers of pupils returning to schools, available space needs to be used effectively to ensure everyone can get around safely. Walking and cycling will play a vital role in ensuring that pupils are able to attend classes safely, helping to make space for those who have no alternative but to use public transport.
The transport network will play a key role in supporting a safe and sustainable recovery for Birmingham. Working alongside our partners at Transport for West Midlands (TfWM), and bus operators including National Express West Midlands, safety is the number one priority. Whilst capacity on public transport is currently reduced to enable social distancing, everyone is working hard to increase this and to provide a safe transport network for those people who need to use it. TfWM have created a series of informative videos, about how to use the public transport network safely:
