NET announce tram ticket to help families join Queen’s Jubilee celebrations across Nottingham

NET has announced a special ticket will be available to families for the Queens Platinum Jubilee to encourage public transport use over the extended bank holiday weekend.

The special ticket will allow a family of 5 to travel around the City for as little as £8.

With a range of great things happening around Nottingham over the special weekend, NET will join in with celebrations by putting the Jubilee logo on the front of every tram, and has also outlined the best tram stops for residents and visitors to use to access key events.

Andrew Conroy from Tramlink said: “We want to do all we can to help celebrate what is going to be a great Jubilee weekend in Nottingham, and our special family ticket will allow families to travel to some fantastic events for just £8.

“The tram will be running as usual and with lots of road closures happening for street celebrations, the tram offers an affordable, green, quick and easy way to access all the amazing events that are happening in and around the City.”
