On which modes of transport can I use Whim?
The service will be launching in the West Midlands area first. In the beta phase, you can use Whim to travel on any National Express West Midlands bus services in the West Midlands and use Midland Metro tram services anywhere between Birmingham and Wolverhampton. You can also use Whim to travel with Gett taxis within Birmingham’s outer ring road. In the future we will be expanding access to local public transport and adding rental cars, city bikes, long distance trains and more. All the transportation options are provided by our partners, listed on these pages. We are constantly adding new services and features, improving the service together with our partners and your help.
What is the Whim button?
The Whim button allows you to use a variety of transport modes on a whim. You can find the white Whim button at the bottom of the app home screen. Choose a taxi or public transportation ticket, confirm your choice, and you’re ready to go.
