Transport

How can 5G help to ease urban traffic congestion – and make public transport more attractive to residents and visitors? That’s the fundamental challenge for our transport team.

WM5G is looking at opportunities to use 5G to:

  • Make transport more efficient and reliable
  • Improve access – making it easier to work, study and access leisure
  • Enhance the experience of travellers by improving services and products across the transport system

We are working closely with Transport for West Midlands to ensure developments align with local policy objectives and help deliver the region’s industrial strategy – creating a happier, healthier and a better-connected place to live.

We are also collaborating with a range of organisations such as Mobile Network Operators (MNOs), broadcasters, public transport operators, the automotive sector and event organisers, to name a few) The aim is to develop quick wins that can make a difference now, as well as developing long-term opportunities for greater impact.

Imagine a well-connected region – easily accessible to residents, visitors and businesses as they establish themselves at a thriving hub of the UK economy.
