Starting in 2006 public transport information and ticketing in the Centro area has been branded as Network West Midlands as part of its 20 year strategy. In a similar fashion to other PTEs around the UK, it is trying to incorporate bus, train and tram travel into one network. This is being done to reduce confusion about the various companies that operate the different modes of transport (some of these are listed below):

The major bus stations and terminals in Birmingham have also been displaying posters informing people of the changes, which includes the introduction of a new set of travel cards:
