With phase indicator

What does it do?

  • Helps users to identify when a service is new
  • Offers users the opportunity to give feedback about a new service

When to use it?

  • When a service is new

When not to use it?

  • On a service that has matured and has a steadily positive rate of satisfaction

How it works

  • A service can be in Alpha (prototype stage) or Beta (when it is on a publicly-accessible website)
  • The survey link must point to a Hotjar or service feedback survey, with the service name within the URL. For example, /?serviceName=descriptiveName. A service can either be in Alpha (prototype stage) or Beta (when it is on a publicly accessible website).

Emergency banner

What does it do

  • It communicates emergency information and provides advice on what to do.
  • When an emergency is no longer relevant, the content will be archived or removed.

When to use it?

  • When you need to communicate information that is urgent or critical, which will potentially affect a large group of our users. For example, if there is an emergency situation announced in Birmingham, the banner would advise all users on travel updates and guidance.
  • The emergency banner should be placed directly below the main navigation.
  • Only show one emergency banner notification at a time.

When not to use it?

  • When a warning or emergency is directly related to a task the user is completing. In this case, use the appropriate Message component to notify users of any issues.
  • If the issue is related to a service we are providing such as our customer service, you should place the Warning text and Inset text components next to the affected service, detailing the issue.
  • Any disruptions to travel will be highlighted on the home page through the Disruption indicator components.

How it works

  • The user can dismiss the Emergency banner through the 'Close' link. This will remove the current emergency banner from all pages they visit on the website.
  • The On-page variant is only shown when a user is on the Emergency advice page, which can be accessed through the 'Read our latest advice' link.

Travel mode page banner

What does it do?

  • Helps users to identify the travel mode service
  • Provides users with a short description of the travel service in the West Midlands

When to use it?

  • Only on Travel Mode Landing Pages

When not to use it?

  • On pages where the mode of travel is not operated by Transport for West Midlands, such as E-scooters

How it works

  • The image container width will expand if users are viewing the page with a browser width higher than 1280px.
  • The image within the container will zoom to fill the size of the image container.
  • The image will be hidden on mobile devices. Our previous research found mobile users do not see the value of images on mobile pages.
  • The image, modal icon and the Transport for West Midlands logo variant will change for each travel mode landing page.
