General Manager of Nottingham Express Transit, Paul Robinson, says the company is 'proud' of the service they've delivered over a ten year period.
Nottingham City Council has also praised the benefits of the network to the city's economy. Councillor Jane Urquhart said:
As part of celebrations for the 10th anniversary of Nottingham's tram network, the city's ice-hockey fans are receiving free tram-travel for the day.
Nottingham Express Transit sponsor the Nottingham Panthers and marketing manager, Jamie Swift, said:
“We wanted to involve the club’s supporters in our celebrations, so anyone with a ticket for Sunday’s match at the Capital FM Arena can travel to the game for free...
... Meanwhile on Monday, tram staff will also be out and about at stops giving away plenty of free tokens of our appreciation as we mark this important milestone in our history.”
Nottingham's tram network is celebrating its 10th anniversary today, since first launching a decade ago in 2004.
Nottingham Express Transit marked the occasion last weekend, with a marquee in Old Market Square, where the public were able to take part in activities.
With work on two new lines to Clifton and Chilwell expected to be completed later this year, the public were also shown a presentation about the benefits of the extension.
The celebrations look to continue in the upcoming weeks, with NET giving away free tram travel for a year and five three-month tram passes through online competitions.
