Getting Around Birmingham

Airports
Birmingham International Airport (BHX) is the fifth largest airport in the United Kingdom and is situated 13 kilometres east
of Birmingham. The adjacent train station is reached via a short trip on the free Air-Rail Link bus. Trains then depart for
Birmingham every 5-20 minutes all day long. Tickets can be purchased at the station and cost GBP 2.70 for the 12 minute long journey to New Street Station. Local bus 900 leaves from bus stop K outside the terminal every 20-30 minutes. The journey to Moor Street Station takes about 35 minutes and costs GBP 1.10.

Public transport
In Birmingham, public transport consists of an extensive bus network and the inner suburbs are linked by local trains and
trams. There are several different types of travel passes from which to choose, including a one-day rover pass.

Taxi
It is easiest to hail a taxi on the street, especially in the centre of the city or at the airport and train stations. Taxis can also be
ordered from companies, for example, Radio Cars.
