At Brum Transport, we try to look at transport from a commuter’s perspective. We have breaking stories covered regularly and other investigations that take weeks/months to reach a conclusion.
We welcome ideas for collaborations and contributions from anyone willing to talk about buses, trains, roads, highways, infrastructure or any other aspect of commute.
Collaborative journalism works by Brum Transport with the local and trade press include:
- Birmingham Eastside
- Transport Network
- Birmingham Mail
- BBC Birmingham and Black Country
- Moseley B13 magazine
Some of these are also on the Brum Transport in the News page.
Recently Brum Transport was shortlisted for the Guardian Student Media Awards 2013.
You can be a part of Brum Transport through #phantombuses – a crowd sourced experiment started on twitter on July 25. We’ve been trying to find out how many buses actually turn up on time and whether commuters know if the next bus is coming or not.
If there are any other aspects of public transport for which you would want to collaborate/ comment you can get in touch with us @brumtransport.
