Fares on Nottingham’s tram network are set to be simplified alongside the return of a popular travel offer.
In response to feedback from customers, NET has replaced return tickets with a wider range of unlimited travel day tickets.
Stephanie Moss-Pearce, NET Marketing Manager, explained: “The changes, to be introduced on January 7, will streamline our ticket offer and make it similar to that of other transport operators in the city – making travelling by tram even easier.”
Whilst the cost of an adult day ticket will remain at £4, concessionary all day unlimited travel will now be available for the same £2.50 price of current return tickets for pass holders from outside Nottinghamshire.
The revised structure will also see the introduction of student single, day and week tickets – priced at £1.70, £3.10 and £13.50 respectively.
Smart card and season ticket prices have been frozen at present whilst the cost of adult and under 19 single ticket cash fares will increase by 10p to £2.30 and £1.20 respectively.
Stephanie said: “These small increases remain below the rate of inflation and regular users can, of course, still make significant savings by using a one of our pay as you go smart cards or by purchasing a season ticket which offer even better value for money.
“We are also pleased to be bringing back a popular special offer for first-time buyers of a monthly season ticket and those who haven’t used one for the past three months. Between January 7 and February 9 they can enjoy unlimited tram travel for just £40 for a whole month from the date of purchase. This is a significant saving of £15 on the standard price.”
Stephanie added: “NET remains committed to providing excellent value for money and encouraging more people to use the tram to beat city-centre congestion and reduce emissions.”
