Football Fans are being urged to take the tram for an easy ride to the hotly anticipated clash between Nottingham Forest and Derby County this weekend.
With the big match set to attract a bumper crowd, NET will be laying on additional Eventlink shuttle buses to help tram customers get from the Nottingham Station stop to the City Ground ahead of kick-off at 1pm on Saturday 18 March.
Jamie Swift, NET’s Head of Marketing, said: “Due to the popularity of the fixture, additional busses will run from our Nottingham Station stop every ten minutes for two hours before kick-off and an hour after the final whistle.”
“Roads around the ground will be very busy with parking expensive and difficult to find, so it makes sense to use our free park & ride facilities and travel with NET to ensure a quick and reliable journey to the match.”
Like the park and ride facilities, the shuttle bus is free to holders of a valid tram ticket, and fans can save even more money thanks to a popular match-day travel offer.
Available from all tram stop ticket machines to holders of a match or season ticket, NET’s Event Ticket
offers return travel to the game for just £2.
Jamie added: “Forest v Derby remains one of the biggest dates on the city’s sporting calendar and we want to help as many fans get to the match hassle-free.
“The tram even provides a great option for visiting supporters too, with both our Toton Lane and Clifton South park & ride sites within close proximity of major routes from Derby.
“By using our network, fans can also save on travel and hopefully leave a little extra in their pocket for that half-time pie or post-match drink.”
