The Government has awarded West Midlands transport authority Centro £33 million to help tackle congestion.
£560 million has been given to travel projects across the country.
Centro will use the money to fund its proposed Smart Network, Smarter Choices project.
This aims to provide sustainable travel schemes across ten key parts of the West Midlands.
It's thought it could help economic growth, create jobs and help to reduce carbon emissions.
The Smart Network, Smarter Choices project will work in close collaboration with the Birmingham, Coventry, Wolverhampton, Sandwell, Walsall, Dudley and Solihull councils as well as private rail and bus operators.
Schemes along the corridors will include:
- New or improved walking and cycling routes
- Small scale road and junction improvements
- Better passenger waiting facilities
- Expert travel planning for families, companies and schools
- Free travel support for job seekers
- More mobile and real time transport information
- Smartcard technology for cashless travel
