If you travel without a valid ticket, pass or smartcard you will be issued with a £70 Penalty Fare Notice.

Our Travel Officers travel every day performing regular ticket checks.

You will be asked to show a valid ticket either on board or at a stop when you get off the tram - this is known as a compulsory ticket area. If you are issued a Penalty Fare Notice you must pay this within 22 days. If you are issued with a Penalty Fare Notice you’ll be asked to provide your name and address. If this is not provided you may be liable for a £500 fine.
