Nottingham tram operators NET have teamed up with low cost coach operator, megabus, to offer coach customers an add-on tram ticket for a simple and seamless journey.
Customers travelling with megabus to or from Nottingham can now add on a tram ticket priced at the standard fares of £2.40 for a single or £4.80 for a return.
The new tram add-on option is available from this week through the megabus website https://uk.megabus.com/.
megabus has stops in the city centre and Nottingham University, both close to the tram network, making connections for onward journeys easy with a ticket for the whole trip. NET is part of Nottingham’s award-winning integrated transport network and is always looking at ways like this to join up public transport options for passengers – from multi-operator ticket options to organising shuttle buses from the tram to football matches.
NET’s Chief Operating Officer Andrew Conroy said: “This is another example of making it easier for our customers and providing joined-up transport options for people visiting Nottingham. Making public transport the best option for people also helps us support Nottingham City Council’s ambition to become the UK’s first carbon neutral city by 2028.
“It makes sense to partner with megabus during this period of recovery as they will have customers that are unfamiliar with the city, so it helps them get around easily.”
Mark Venables, megabus Managing Director said: It’s great to be able to add Nottingham Tram to our network of partners and offer our customers an easyjoint ticket that can be purchased through our website.
“Customers want ‘simple travel’ options, and at megabus we are striving to make travel simple by connecting with partners to offer seamless connectivity.
“As people can now enjoy travel and making plans to visit new cities – or re-connect with friends and family, we’re pleased to be able to make people’s journeys even easier.”
