Changes on board our trams

11 Sep 2020

As more employees and students return to workplaces and education, we have reviewed how best to provide the safe capacity needed for customers on our trams. 

From 14 September, ahead of the Purple route and a significant section of the Blue route re-opening from 15 September, we will be putting in place revised social distancing arrangements consistent with the government's 1m+ guidelines. Labels which currently recommend seats not to be used will be removed. 


These changes will provide more flexible and efficient use of available seats, such as for family groups or customers in the same household, and aim to reduce any congestion around doorways.


The safety and well-being of our customers and our employees remains our priority. We would kindly ask passengers to continue to be considerate to others, respect social distancing, wear face coverings as required and to follow the public health advice around handwashing before and after travel.  We would also advise passengers to try and avoid busier times where possible.
