Getting into Nottingham

It’s never been easier to visit Nottingham this Christmas time with an award-winning bus operator, nine park and ride sites and a far-reaching tram network, so there are plenty of options if you plan ahead!

By tram

Park and glide into the city from one of the seven NET park & ride sites where there are over 5000 FREE spaces!

NET’s £6 Group ticket will be available after 4pm and at weekends throughout December, and then every day from Monday 20 December 2021 until Monday 3 January 2022. The ticket allows unlimited travel for up to 2 adults and 3 children (under 19) and can be purchased at any ticket machine or via the NETGO! app.

Trams will be running throughout the Christmas period (with the exception of Christmas Day) and the service will be extended on New Year Eve until 2am.

Park and Ride from:

Clifton South

The Forest


Moor Bridge

Phoenix Park

Toton Lane

Wilkinson Street

All tram travel is 'buy before you board', so please ensure you buy a ticket from the machine at the stop.

By bus

We’ve teamed up with Nottingham City Transport (NCT) to offer their Grouprider ticket, which offers unlimited travel for families and couples travelling together for just £5 this Christmas.

Simply download the NCTX Buses App, select Mobile Tickets and then Off Peak Grouprider. At the checkout, enter ITSINNOTTINGHAM and it will reduce the ticket to £5.

A Grouprider covers up to 5 people, where there has to be at least 1 adult (aged 19 or over) and no more than two adults. A Grouprider can be used by 2 adults travelling together without any children too. Available after 09:30 weekdays and all day on the weekends.

All customers who board together on a Grouprider ticket, should alight together at the same stop.

Available from 24 November 2021.

By car

Christmas shopping can be stressful enough without the hassle of parking so we’ve partnered with National Car Parks (NCP) to bring you a great bespoke parking offer this Christmas time:

£10 for 24 hours at one of the NCP car parks in Nottingham (excluding Maid Marian Way).

NCP Nottingham Stoney Street

NCP Nottingham Mount Street

 The offer is available through NCP’s ParkPass App, which is free to download and easy to set up. Payment details and the SaverID: NOTTSXMAS21 need to be registered for it to allow the discount.
