Nottingham’s tram network is planning to provide a welcome saving for new and occasional customers by cutting the cost of stepping up to a monthly season ticket.
First-time buyers, and anyone who’s not had a NET season ticket for the past three months, can enjoy £15 off the usual price of £55 if they buy before Saturday, September 28.
Anyone returning to college or university after the summer break can also take advantage of a new monthly Student Season Ticket, priced at £45.
The offers are part of an annual fares review that’s seen a freeze on the cost of the network’s most popular standard adult and child single and day tickets.
Stephanie Moss-Pearce, NET Marketing Manager, commented: “Thanks to these offers and a hold on any increase to the majority of tickets, we hope to tempt even more people into leaving their car at home - or at one of our free park and ride facilities - rather than driving into the city centre.
“Students will also benefit from a more flexible ticketing option, enabling them to fit their travel plans with their studies.”
The launch of the offer coincides with slight increases to other student and u19 term fares, typically by £5 for term passes and £10 for annual passes.
NET’s daily cap on adult Robin Hood ‘pay as you go’ fares will also increase from £3.60 to £3.70, while the cap for under 19s also raises by 10p to £2.20.
Stephanie added: “The tram offers fantastic value for money as well as swift, convenient travel around the city without the hassle of getting stuck in traffic or finding a parking space.
“Whilst modest increases have been introduced to some fares, our other fantastic offers are sure to be popular with anyone thinking of making more use of a world-class tram network.”
The fares changes are to be introduced from Sunday, August 25, and the discounted monthly season ticket will be available from Tuesday, August 27, at the NET Travel Centre in King Street.
