The tram network in Nottingham has partnered with a taxi firm to offer discounted fares to help customers catch trams to and from Hucknall.

NET has teamed up with iDEAL CARS after changes to a bus service which meant that some customers were unable to get to the tram stop in Hucknall in the early morning and late in the evening.

The firm is now offering NET customers 10 per cent off taxi fares for journeys to and from the stop at any time, when they show a valid tram ticket.

Jamie Swift, NET marketing manager, said: “We’re delighted to partner with a local company to offer our loyal customers another additional benefit of using the tram.

“We hope this partnership will continue to make access to the tram even easier and help encourage more people to discover how convenient the service is to use.”

Director of Hucknall-based iDEAL CARS, Ian Brough, which was was formed in August this year, said: “We already offer a cheaper alternative to other taxi firms in the Hucknall area, so our 10 per cent discount should make our fares even lighter on the pocket of NET customers.

He added: We are pleased to partner with NET as we look to add value to Nottingham’s excellent tram service and provide customers with a means of avoiding a potentially long walk in the cold winter weather.”
