This year, a full weekday service will operate on Good Friday (April 19), with trams from every six minutes.
On Easter Sunday there’ll be trams every 15 minutes and on Bank Holiday Monday, a special timetable will see services operate from every 10 minutes. A normal Saturday service will be in operation on April 20.
Carl Williams, West Midlands Metro Director of Operations, explained: “There’s plenty going on in the region over the long weekend and we wanted to make sure our customers find it as easy as possible to get around.
“The break also offers an ideal opportunity to discover the ease and convenience of travelling by tram to beat the holiday traffic and, as an added bonus, we’re extending our great value £5 Group ticket so the whole family can enjoy a holiday adventure.”
With a whole day’s tram travel for five adults, or two adults and up to four children, travelling together, the popular offer means the whole family can explore the region without breaking the bank. Usually available only at weekends and weekdays off-peak, the deal has been extended to cover all of Good Friday and Bank Holiday Monday.
“By reducing the stress and expense of getting around the West Midlands, we aim to offer people a little more time and money to spend in shops, attractions and nights out,” Carl said.
“Also, with our 550 free spaces at our park and ride facilities they can avoid the hassle of finding a parking space and save even more cash,” he added.
