Covid-19 Travel Advice
Decide the best journey for you.
Trams are running every 15 minutes for key workers and essential journeys - download our temporary timetable. If you want to travel outside of the busiest times, the graph below shows the times when customers are travelling.
Stay safe when using the tram.
We've made some small changes to the way we run our service. Although we can’t guarantee social distancing at all times, we’re trying our best to encourage all of our customers to adapt and follow these new guidelines for a safer journey.
Please remember you must wear a face covering when using the tram. Please be considerate to others. Hidden disabilities or medical conditions may mean not everyone can.
Please don't use the tram if you are feeling ill - stay at home.
Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the bin.
Please respect social distancing and stand apart at the stop.
Use all available doors - the single doors at each end of the tram are not currently in use.
Tram doors will open automatically, then board one at a time. If the tram is too busy to maintain social distancing please be responsible and do not board.
Before and after travelling, wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds.
We're all in this together please be kind and considerate to other customers and colleagues.
For social distancing please use all the available space to keep no less than 1m apart.
To keep our colleagues safe some seats at the ends of the tram are not in use.
Smartcards, m-tickets and tickets will be checked without contact.
No need to touch the door buttons, doors will open automatically
Our windows are open to allow a flow of fresh air into the tram - please do not close these if you are on board.
All our trams are being thoroughly cleaning throughout the day.
We're ready when you are.
