West Midlands Metro is set to make a further adjustment to its timetables as members of the public follow the government instruction to avoid all non-essential travel.
Following the recent changes to Monday to Saturday services, from this weekend changes will be made to the Sunday timetable, with trams running every 15 minutes through the day.
Carl Williams, Metro Director of Operations, explained: “It’s encouraging that so many people are following the government’s advice, but we still need to maintain a regular, robust service for key workers and those who still need to travel for medical reasons, to support a vulnerable person, or for the collection of essential supplies.
“With this in mind, and in line with current demand, on Sundays we’re running trams every quarter of an hour from the start of services through to the close.”
The temporary Monday to Friday timetable remains in place and is unchanged. Full timetables can be found here. More information on the Metro’s response to the coronavirus outbreak can be found here (westmidlandsmetro.com/coronavirus), and regular updates are available via Twitter (@WMmetro).
Customers can also speak to a member of the team using the assistance button located on the shelter at every stop.
Mr Williams added: “Once again we would like to remind customers that they should only travel if it’s absolutely essential, maintain social distancing and follow the government advice to stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives.
