More commuters and business travellers in the West Midlands will be able to use the M6toll thanks to the introduction of a new Tag trial.
The Hopper£35 Tag pass offers commuters joining or leaving the motorway at junctions T4, T5 or T6 unlimited journeys for just £35 per week.
The new Hopper£35 Tag is designed to support local businesses and commuters, offering smoother and more predictable travel times, reduced fuel consumption and calmer drivers.
Andy Cliffe, chief executive of Midlands Expressway Ltd (MEL), operators of the M6toll, said: “Driving in rush hour can be frustrating, time-consuming and harmful to health – for both employees and businesses.
“For those travelling through the West Midlands, the quickest way to make a difference for the past 15 years has been to use the M6toll, avoiding the congested M6 motorway and other local routes.
“We believe our road represents an easier, stress-free driving experience – and it is important to us that more people are able to enjoy that experience.
“Less congestion makes for a safer drive and more reliable journeys, which is good for the wellbeing of people and businesses in the region.”
