We spoke with Birmingham residents about how they prefer to travel in and around the city

The city of Birmingham has seen many changes to it’s transport infrastructure over the past few years, from the implementation of the clean air zone, to the expansion of the metro.

We find out from Brummies how they prefer to travel in and around the city.

Angie said: “I love coming into Birmingham on the tram because it’s really easy and convenient from where I live. And I also love the voice scooters because I like the buzz they give you going around town and getting from place to place.”

Jess added: “Yeah I prefer getting into town by tram - it’s more reliable, they turn up. Like you can have a great conversation with someone the way it’s set out, it’s more sociable than, say the buses.”

James said “Well, to be honest, I just walk around Birmingham when I’m in the town centre. I just walk around and that’s my preferred way to travel in the city centre. But I do get buses quite often. And that’s my main mode of transport. I wouldn’t say it’s because I prefer it. It’s just that’s what I do. I’ve just get the buses. But yeah, when I’m in town, I just wander around and walk.”
