Following the successful launch of tram services to Toton Lane, communities in the area are set to benefit from a more integrated public transport network.
From Monday, September 7, Nottingham Buses service ‘Link17’ will call at the new tram terminus, linking Toton, Stapleford, Sandiacre and Long Eaton with the city’s expanded tram network.
As well as a joined-up tram/bus service, customers can also look forward to through ticketing. Available on the bus, a combined return ticket costs just £4.50, with weekly and 28-day passes available priced at £20 and £65 respectively.
Jamie Swift, NET Marketing Manager, commented: “We’re delighted that the Toton Lane tram stop has been added to the bus timetable.
“The move will make it even easier for people from the areas served by the Link17 to enjoy a rapid and reliable journey in and out of the centre of Nottingham, as well as other key locations served by the tram, including the Queen’s Medical Centre.
“With buses every half hour through the day, and trams to Toton up to every seven minutes at peak times, this partnership also demonstrates how the tram is becoming the backbone of an even more convenient, integrated transport network.”
