Mobility Scooters

Customers are able to travel with a mobility scooter on tram services.

To ensure the safe operation of mobility scooters, a permit scheme is in place. Please note that there are only two disabled priority bays per tram.

Carriage of a mobility scooter is at the discretion of West Midlands Metro staff.

Do I qualify?

Your scooter must meet the following criteria:

  • Class 2 Mobility Scooter
  • Maximum 600mm Wide
  • Maximum 1,000mm Long
  • Maximum 1,200mm Turning radius

How does it work?

Once you have provided us your details & Scooter model number we will process your application to ensure that your Scooter model is suitable for use on the tram.

If the scooter is suitable we will send you a permit that allows you to use your scooter on the tram. The permit will take the form of a pass that should be presented to the Conductor on board your tram. The permit will contain basic information about your scooter.
