Nottingham Express Transit


Nottingham Express Transit (NET) is Nottingham’s Tram system offering an easy and convenient way to travel in and around the City.

Trams run from every 7 minutes and with the exception of Christmas day, every day until just after midnight. There are 7 park and ride sites across the network offering free parking, including dedicated blue badge parking,  City Council Cycle hubs and parent and child parking spaces. All sites are monitored by CCTV and are easily accessible from the M1 motorway.

All trams are 100% low floor, have dedicated wheelchair and pushchair spaces and electronic signage and audible announcements.

The network consists of 2 main lines; Toton Lane to Hucknall and Clifton to Phoenix Park, both of which crossing within the City Centre. The network also serves the areas of Chilwell, Beeston, Lenton, Forest Fields, Hyson Green, Basford, Highbury Vale, Cinderhill, Bulwell, Wilford and Compton Acres.

Tram stops are convenient located outside many of the City’s attractions and key buildings including Nottingham Trent University and University of Nottingham, Theatre Royal and Royal Concert Hall, Old Market Square, Nottingham Conference Centre,  Nottingham Tennis Centre, Nottingham Hockey Club, Lakeside Arts Centre and Nottingham Contemporary.  It is also the only tram system in Europe to give direct access to a hospital. The new “Sir Peter Mansfield” link bridge opened in 2017 giving a direct link from the tram platform to the QMC.

For those travelling to the City by train, the tram stop at Nottingham station offers visitors an easy connection. NET is also part of the Robin Hood Network, offering easy, accessible, smart travel across a network of bus, tram and train operators. There are a number of ticket options available, depending on the needs of the customer. These range from all day travel for just £4 to evening and weekend group travel for just £5. NET works with all of the major sporting and event venues to offer a £2 event return ticket. For more frequent users, a range of pay as you go and season smart cards are available, giving a hassle free “touch on” system offering the best value fare for your journey.

NET operates a buy before you board ticket system meaning all tickets must be purchased before travel. This can either be done via the website, at the ticket machines at each platform or at the NET travel centre, located on King Street.

In 2016, NET revived the popular “Beer by Tram” guide in partnership with the Nottingham branch of CAMRA. There are over 45 real ale pubs within a 5 minute walk of all tram stops and the trail has become a firm favourite with the real ale drinking community.
All trams are named after a local hero of the past and present. Names include skating champions Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, BAFTA winning actress Vicky McClure and Football legend Brian Clough. For a full list of names, visit the NET website.
