On Sunday (May 6), Premiere Travel and NET will be launching a new ticket for bus passengers who want to catch a tram at the Moor Bridge stop.

A local bus firm has joined forces with the operator of Nottingham’s tram network to provide a joint travel deal serving the Hucknall area.

On Sunday (May 6), Premiere Travel and NET will be launching a new ticket for bus passengers who want to catch a tram at the Moor Bridge stop.

Costing just £3.60 for adults and £2 for under-16s, the ‘Change to Tram’ ticket enables all-day travel on the tram for passengers using Premiere’s Red 8 buses. It can also be purchased on the firm’s Service 2 buses that connect with Red 8.

Florian Le Loroux, NET’s Marketing Manager, explained: “This is a great example of two transport companies working together to encourage more people to leave their cars at home when travelling into the city centre.

“The ticket offers great value for money and the convenience of paying once for travelling on both the bus and tram.”

Steve Greaves, Premiere’s Managing Director: “We are delighted to be able to work with NET to offer our customers this new ticket. We have had feedback from some customers in Hucknall telling us that they need to change to the tram for their journey.

“This new ticket option makes the change so much easier,” he added.

The new ticket is available from Sunday, May 6, and further details about bus and tram times and fares can be found at www.premierebuses.co.uk and www.thetram.net.
