The best way to explore Birmingham is on foot as the majority of
the city centre is now pedestrianised and the canals, which have
been cleaned up, make for attractive walkways. The most popular
form of transport used in Birmingham and the West Midlands area are
buses. There is no central bus station, but a bus stop can be found
on almost every corner. Single fares, travelcards and Daysaver
tickets are available for unlimited travel for a day. An exact fare
is required when boarding the bus, as drivers will not give
Black cabs can be hailed in the street or reached at one of the
many taxi ranks in the city centre, the main ones situated at New
Street Station, Stephenson Street and Digbeth Coach Station. New
Street and Moor Street train stations provide rail connections to
destinations throughout the UK. For coach transfers to other major
towns and cities, National Express is a good bet. Mobile app based
taxi services, like Uber, are also available.
