Stagecoach Supertram provides a great way of getting to and from Tramlines Festival with frequent services direct to and from the festival site from the City Centre, railway station and various car parks. Our DayRider tickets offer a great value ride there and back, buy in advance on the Stagecoach app at a discounted price or simply jump on the tram and buy one from the Conductor.
Hillsborough (Blue & Yellow routes) has food and drink venues plus various shops and is a short walk from the festival site. Trams run from the City Centre up to every 6 minutes (10 minutes on Sunday)
Hillsborough Park (Yellow route only) is almost across the road from the festival entry gates. Trams run from the City Centre up to every 12 minutes (every 20 minutes on Sunday).
After the final headline act you should follow the signage on the festival site for the exit to Leppings Lane tram stop where all trams to the City Centre will board, There will be no access to the stop from the street. Additional trams will run providing frequent departures towards the City Centre. Please, only use Leppings Lane tram stop when leaving the festival as other stops* are unlikely to be served at the busiest times, until crowds have been cleared from the festival area.
A queuing system will be in operation and you will be required to show a valid tram ticket to access the platform. We'll have staff selling tram tickets at the festival exit but those already holding tickets will enjoy fast track access to the boarding point at Leppngs Lane!
*Tram stops expected to be closed at the busiest time are Middlewood, Hillsborough Park, Hillsborough, Bamforth Street, Langsett Primrose View and Infirmary Road. This means trams will not set down or pick up at these stops.
A range of money saving day tickets are available to buy on the Stagecoach Bus app before boarding including options that also include bus travel as well as group travel deals. App tickets are not only the best price but convenient too and customers who already hold tickets will benefit from fast track access to the boarding point. Just activate and show your ticket on your phone.
You can also buy a range of tickets from the Conductor on tram. We accept cash or contactless payments.
* A valid TSY Zoom or TSY Zoom 16-18 pass is required for children aged over 11. Children aged over 11 without a valid pass will be charged the adult fare.
** Valid Zoom Beyond pass required
Free parking is available for tram customers at Parkgate, Meadowhall Interchange, Valley Centertainment, Nunnery Square, Halfway, Middlewood and Malin Bridge (note that after the event, trams will not serve Malin Bridge for around 2 hours), subject to availability. Just buy your ticket on the tram or Stagecoach Bus app as normal. For more information on all Park & Ride sites, visit Travel South Yorkshire.

To ensure the safety of customers and staff, and to ensure we are able to clear festival goers as quickly and safely as possible, some additional trams are planned to operate. In addition to these trams, Malin Bridge tram stop will not have any service at the following times, with the trams concerned diverted to Middlewood to serve the festival:
- No service at Malin Bridge between 21:34 and 23:38 on Friday 22 and Saturday 23 July
- No service at Malin Bridge between 20:46 and 22:46 on Sunday 24 July
We expect a number of tram stops to also close at the end of the event, meaning trams will not pick up or set down at these stops. The stops that will close once the festival ends include Malin Bridge (see above(, Leppngs Lane outbound, Middlewood, Hillborough Park both directions and Hillsborough both directions. It is likely that Bamforth Street, Langsett Primrose View and Infirnary Road tram stops may also be closed.
Please note that Tram Train and Purple services will operate as timetabled however, football at Rotherham United may increase demand on Tram Train services.
