South Yorkshire Tram Train

Since Thursday 25 October 2018 the Tram Train service has been operating between Sheffield Cathedral and Rotherham Parkgate via Rotherham Central station.

Passengers in South Yorkshire are the first in the country to benefit from the innovative Tram Trains. These are special tram vehicles designed to run on both the city’s tram lines and the rail network between Sheffield and Rotherham.

3 services operate an hour and travel on the Supertram network from Sheffield Cathedral to Meadowhall South / Tinsley, then proceed over a new section of track linking the tram line to the rail line. It then continues on to the national rail network to Rotherham Parkgate via Rotherham Central station.

There are 31 dedicated parking spaces for Tram Train customers within Parkgate retail park, and there is no charge for this parking. Please note that parking facilities outside of these 31 dedicated parking spaces are subject to the parking terms and conditions of Parkgate retail park. This includes terms of maximum stay.

There are a range of tickets available in both the Sheffield and Rotherham fare zones that allow travel on the Supertram network, Tram Train and buses. English National Concessionary Travel Scheme (ENCTS) passes are also valid on Tram Train.

Please note that Railcards and general rail tickets are not valid for use on any Supertram services. SYConnect +, GetAbout +, South Yorkshire Plusbus and Railmaster tickets are valid on Tram Train and trams, and are available from ticket offices.

Our fare guide and timetable are also available to download.
