Welcome to Pre Metro
Who are we? A small Train Operating Company running an innovative light rail operation between Stourbridge Town and Stourbridge Junction.
We like to keep things simple, so for the vast majority of the day, we operate a “turn up and go” frequent service of every 10 minutes from both Stourbridge Junction and Stourbridge Town stations.
Shuttle Passenger Information
We link Stourbridge Junction with Stourbridge Town every 10 minutes, with direct links to Snow Hill line trains at the Junction and local bus services at Stourbridge Interchange at the Town.
We have lots of young fans of our unique service – and the railcars that operate the Stourbridge Shuttle! Here’s Jamie and Daniel with their Dad, who came from Nuneaton to see our operation, alongside our driver Scott!
Nearly 6 million passengers
Congratulations Jo, our 5 millionth passenger.
Track Record of Success
Although Pre Metro Operations is the smallest train operating company in the UK, it is managed by a team of transport professionals and has an impressive track record of success.

Hello and welcome to Pre Metro.

We’re a Train Operating Company – the smallest in the UK! And we’re doing something rather special – every day….

139001 to the Junction

In partnership with West Midlands Railway, we operate the Stourbridge Shuttle – the link between Stourbridge Town and Stourbridge Junction. It’s the shortest branch line in the country – possibly in Europe – but our unique operation doesn’t stop there.

Using innovative technology, we’re providing the best-ever service this line has seen in its 140-plus year history. Our operation is clean, green, frequent, highly reliable and easy-access. We’re also local. Based in Stourbridge, our dedicated staff all live in the local area – we’re a real part of the local community!

Since we commenced 7-day operation of the service in 2009, we’ve grown patronage, increased the frequency, cut emissions, reduced service operation costs and revived the Sunday service on the line for the first time since 1914! Reliability of the service currently stands between 99.7 – 100%.

Our Stourbridge Shuttle operation is a success – contact us to discuss if we can do the same for your local rail operation.

Hello and welcome to Pre Metro
Our unique Ultra Light Rail service uses environmentally-friendly railcars and provides cost-effective local transport links. We’re ultra-reliable too – our Stourbridge service currently operates at 99.8% reliability; the best Train Operating Company figures anywhere in the UK.
