Public Transport

Nottingham’s award-winning public transport system is fully integrated and services over 70 million journeys each year.

Significant investment has been made to improve the transport infrastructure and with Phase Two of the tram system now well underway, the transport network is set to expand and get even better, acting as a catalyst for economic growth for the city.

The use of public transport gives benefits in terms of:

  • Reducing traffic congestion
  • Minimising pressure on parking resources
  • Improving employee health
  • Delivering cost savings
  • Raising awareness of the green agenda
  • Faster journey times
  • Reducing CO2 emissions

Here are some of the ways in which you can make public transport more accessible:

  • Consider providing interest free loans to staff to enable them to purchase season tickets
  • Publish information on ticket types for buses trams and trains
