Keeping you safe

The safety of our customers and our staff remains our highest priority. We’re continuing to carry out an enhanced cleaning regime, with staff regularly cleaning frequently touched services at tram stops such as ticket machines and help points.

On board trams, we’re carrying out thorough cleans every time a tram reaches the end of the line, as well as in the depot. In addition we are stopping at every stop and opening doors automatically.

Stay safe on the tram

When using the trams, help us by continuing to follow the latest government guidance for everyone’s safety:
• Plan your journey in advance and avoid the busiest routes, as well as busy times like the rush hour
• Wear a face covering unless you are exempt for age, health or equality reasons – please visit our website if you would like an exemption card
• Maintain social distancing guidance
• Wash or sanitise your hands regularly
• Be considerate to fellow passengers and staff
