Nottingham tram network to resume full service

More trams will be running on the network from Monday Credit: ITV News Central

The tram network in Nottingham will be running its full service again from Monday 3 August, as people are encouraged to begin returning to work.

When Coronavirus public health advice was to avoid using public transport, the NET tram network was running a Sunday service, seven days a week.

NET trams will now operate from every seven minutes on its normal timetable.

The NET Travel Centre in King Street is also reopening.

The operator says extra measures have been taken to protect customers and staff including disinfecting frequently touched surfaces at the end of every trip.

As public transport restrictions begin to lift, we are ready to resume our full timetable and look forward to welcoming more people back on the trams. Customer and staff safety will continue to be a priority and we will continue to follow government advice at every stage.

We would ask customers to continue to adhere to social distancing guidelines and wear face coverings when travelling with us or visiting the travel centre. We have also taken extra measures to protect our customers and staff, such as an improved cleaning regime – ensuring that frequently touched surfaces onboard each tram, including handrails, can be disinfected at the end of every trip.

Drivers will also halt at all stops and automatically open doors so that customers don’t have to touch the stop request bell or door-opening buttons.
