Pre Metro Operations Ltd

Home – Welcome to Pre Metro!

Pre Metro on the move!

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

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 130-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.
