Nottingham’s tram network is delivering the gift of stress-free, festive-travel around the city this Christmas.
All your seasonal celebrations and activities are covered by NET’s full timetable throughout the holiday period.
Services will operate all day, every day until after midnight, except on Christmas Day.
To help customers make the most of their last-minute shopping trips a full service will be run on Christmas Eve, with a Sunday service running on Boxing Day for those wanting to grab extra bargains in the sales.
Normal weekday services will resume on Thursday, December 27, with trams every seven minutes and late-night trams to keep the celebrations going without the worry of getting home.
Stephanie Moss-Pearce, NET Marketing Manager commented: “Whatever you need to do over the festive period, the tram offers a stress-free way to get around Nottingham and avoid the traffic at the busiest time of the year.”
“As always, our Christmas timetable is set to ensure customers can make the most of the holiday season in the city.”“With a full schedule of late-night trams and special New Year services, we guarantee that tram travel is the best way to travel right into 2019.”
New Year’s celebrations are also fully covered to help customers make the most of their parties. A normal service with additional late-night trams will run on New Year’s Eve, with no service between Royal Centre and Nottingham Station between 23.30 and 00.30 to allow for the festivities in Old Market Square. Services will then run through the city centre to all destinations until 01.25.
New Year’s Day will enjoy a full Sunday service with trams every 10 minutes, and full services will resume on January 2.
During the holiday, tram travel is also great value with a £5 Group Ticket available all day, everyday between December 24 and January 4. It offers unlimited tram travel for two adults and up to three children and is available from all tram stop ticket machines.
Stephanie added: “By taking advantage of our ticket offers and free park and ride facilities across the network, tram customers can avoid congestion on the roads and the hassle of finding a parking space. They’ll also have a little extra money to spend on presents!”
