FAQs

 

How much longer will my journey time be? We can't say for certain, as it would depend on traffic conditions, but we would advise allowing for an additional 20-30 minutes to your usual travel time to ensure you reach your destination on time.

Are the park and ride sites open as normal? Yes, all of our park and ride sites will be operating as normal. We may have slightly reduced capacity at our Forest Park and Ride to ensure we have enough clearance for buses to turn, but plenty of spaces will be available.

Will I have to buy a ticket for the replacement bus? You will need to buy a tram ticket or scan your travel cards before boarding the tram. Travel cards and tickets are accepted on the tram replacement bus service and will be checked when you board.

Can I get a tram ticket on the bus? No, you will need to have a tram ticket before you reach the bus. The easiest way would be to use the NET GO app to purchase your tickets or use the machine at the nearest tram stop before using the bus service. If you have a travel card, please scan this at the nearest tram stop before starting your journey.

Can I park at the Forest Park-and-Ride and walk to my destination? You are only permitted to use the car park if you are using the NET system or replacement bus services. Anyone parking and not using the NET system or replacement bus services may be subject to having their vehicle clamped. Click here for more information about parking enforcement at our park-and-ride sites.

Can I park at the Forest Park-and-Ride and walk to my destination if I have purchased a ticket? Yes, but you would need to register your vehicle and buy your tickets on the NET GO app. Click here for information on registering your vehicle for parking on the NET GO app. Alternatively, you may purchase a paper ticket and leave it on display in your vehicle for the attention of the parking attendants. You will need to purchase another ticket for your return journey if you're using the tram.

Can I park at the Forest Park-and-Ride and walk to my destination if I have a NET season ticket? Yes, your parking is covered by your NET tram season ticket. You must ensure your vehicle registration is registered with us and up to date. For information on registering your vehicle, click here

Can I apply for a refund or partial refund on my tickets or season pass during the works? It's really important that we carry out regular maintenance on our network to ensure we can continue to operate a safe and reliable network. Whilst we appreciate your patience during this time, we have implemented a robust replacement bus service which should have minimal impact on your usual journey and therefore will not be offering partial refunds or refunds on tickets covering the above dates if services and replacement services are operating to plan. For further information on our refund policy, please visit https://www.thetram.net/terms-conditions

Can I use my tram ticket on any other buses or trains? Our tickets will not be accepted on any other bus services or the trains. If our tram services are affected by disruption during the work and we're unable to service all of our stops, we may request support from other bus or train operators who will accept our tickets. Follow our social media channels for service updates during the works. Facebook and X
