History
Opened30 May 2016

Grand Central tram stop is a tram stop on the city-centre extension of Line 1 of the West Midlands Metro. It opened on 30 May 2016 as the terminus of the line on Stephenson Street outside the shopping centre from which its name was derived and Birmingham New Street station.[1][2][3] Beyond the stop, a short spur, which does not carry passengers, allows trams to reverse onto the opposite track to commence their return journey.

In October 2013 Birmingham City Council voted to extend the line, adding two additional stops beyond Grand Central, at the Town Hall and Centenary Square.[4][5]
