St Chads is a stop on the West Midlands Metro in Birmingham between St Paul's and Bull Street.

The original city centre terminus of the West Midlands Metro was at Birmingham Snow Hill railway station. In 2016 the metro was extended into the city centre, eventually as far as Edgbaston Village. St Chads was opened in 2016 as a replacement for the Snow Hill stop which was closed.
Although St Chads is adjacent to the railway station's platforms there was no direct interchange between the two put in place. Indeed, Bull Street is advertised as the best stop to alight for the railway station, this is why the tram stop was not called Snow Hill when opened.
