Birmingham Airport is committed to its impact on the local environment and encourages all staff to consider using public transport to and from the Airport, in order to reduce the amount of traffic the Airport generates on the local road network. The Airport is served by frequent bus and trains, and if you live close to the Airport, cycling to work may be worth considering. Even if you can only occasionally cycle, or use the bus or train, this will help reduce the 10 million road trips to and from the Airport each year.
For regular travellers there is a range of ntrain and nnetwork season tickets available for journeys in the West Midlands urban area. Add-on prices are available for tickets to stations outside this area.
For regular travellers the nbus season ticket can be used on all buses in the West Midlands urban area. National Express West Midlands also have a range of cheaper Travelcards which may be used only on their own services.
Note: The nbus ticket is not valid for journeys to Coleshill on the 717,757,767 and 777 services.
Cycling can be a fast, flexible and reliable way of getting to work for employees living close to the Airport. For example the 3 mile journey to Chelmsley Wood takes 15 to 20 minutes. Secure cycle storage lockers are available for all Airport staff and showers are available in Diamond House and the Passenger Terminals.
Further information about Airport rail and bus services and cycling to the Airport is in the Airport Guides available from the public transport information stands in the Passenger Terminals.
