A public transport system never touched Lower Gornal until the appearance of the motor bus, however Upper Gornal was well connected with the advent of the tramway in the 1880s which ran between Wolverhampton and Dudley.
From the 1920s, trolley buses operated along the tram route from Wolverhampton to Dudley via Upper Gornal, an omnibus service also ran from Dudley to Gornal Wood from around this time.
A rail service with a stop at Gornal Halt - just over the Pensnett border was operated in the 1920s for a short time.
Other than this, and before the advent of the automobile, only horses, carts and shanks's pony could provide transport for the locals, further leading to the isolation of the district.
