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 seven minutes and, with the exception of Christmas day, every day until just after midnight. There are seven park and ride sites across the network offering 5,000 free parking spaces, including dedicated blue badge parking, parent and child spaces, and cycle hubs managed by the City Council. All sites are monitored by CCTV and are easily accessible from the M1 motorway.

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

The network consists of two main lines; Toton Lane to Hucknall and Clifton to Phoenix Park, both of which pass through 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 conveniently 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 ‘Sir Peter Mansfield’ link bridge opened in 2017 providing 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. There are a number of ticket options available, ranging from all day travel to evening and weekend group travel, a discounted Event Ticket, and season fares for regular travellers.

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, at the NET travel centre, in King Street, or via the NETGO! app.

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.

In 2020, look out for an updated version of the popular ‘Beer by Tram’ guide, produced in partnership with the Nottingham branch of CAMRA. There are over 45 real ale pubs within a five minute walk of tram stops and the trail has become a firm favourite with the real ale drinking community.

NET is also part of the Robin Hood Network, offering easy, accessible, smart travel across a network of bus, tram and train operators. 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.
