Students arriving at university in Nottingham for the first time, or returning after the summer break, are in for a treat when planning how to get to lectures thanks to the city’s tram network.

Ahead of the start of term, NET has launched two new fare options alongside its popular season ticket offers.

Both students and staff travelling to Nottingham Trent University’s Clifton campus from Clifton South – which boasts hundreds of free parking places – can take advantage of the new NTU Clifton Student Return. The campus is just a short walk from the Rivergreen stop and at just £1.50 it offers excellent value as well as a quick and convenient way to get to lectures for anyone with an NTU ID card.

 For students looking for a little extra flexibility, a new monthly Student Season Ticket has also been launched, priced at £45, and sits alongside the academic year pass costing £245 and three- and 12-month tickets at £120 and £275.

Rebekah Smith, NET Marketing Manager, commented: “The range of tickets offer great value for money and excellent flexibility, so travelling to lectures is one less thing to worry about for students.

“During Freshers’ Week, on September 25 and 26, members of the NET team will be on hand at the NTU stop in the city to welcome new students, offering help and advice on how they can make the most of the deals.

“We’ll also be the University of Nottingham’s Welcome Fair, where freshers can have a go at our fun wind tunnel game and win a range of prizes, including free tram travel.”
