  • £1 single flat fare for service personnel on production of a military ID card- saving a third on the cheapest adult single currently available
  • guaranteed entry to the first stage of the Supertram recruitment process
  • Supertram uses First Military Recruitment and the RFEA -a charity working with service leavers to recruit new members of their engineering team
  • Supertram works with local cadet and Territorial Army groups to help inform about Supertram career and employment opportunities

 

Stagecoach Supertram Managing Director, Margaret Kay said: ‘The importance of the Armed Forces Community to the UK cannot be underestimated. At Supertram we are hugely grateful to our military personnel for the courageous work they do, both at home and abroad, in the interests of British citizens.  

Mark Logie from HQ 4 Infantry Brigade & HQ North East said: "It is great to see that Stagecoach Supertram has made this commitment to serving members of the Armed Forces and to those making the transition from service to civilian life in the Sheffield area. We look forward to building a positive relationship with Supertram over the coming months so we can identify ways in which our organisations can work together to the benefit of all concerned."
