Transport for West Midlands is part of West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA). WMCA is the twelve local authorities and three Local Enterprise Partnerships working together to move powers from Whitehall to the West Midlands and our locally elected politicians, who know this region best. The agreement with government will see it make an annual contribution worth £40 million for 30 years to support an overall investment package that will unlock £8 billion, alongside the creation of up to half a million jobs.
We recognise the need to promote innovation to deliver smart and intelligent mobility solutions that will make it easier for our customers to travel across the conurbation, thereby benefitting the local economy, improving health and protecting the environment.
We will achieve this through working with a range of partner organisations, start-ups, and SMEs to encourage and foster new thinking and new solutions to deliver the products and services that will be required to meet the needs of a growing population.
