TRAM NETWORK GETS READY FOR GOOSE FAIR
Visitors to Nottingham’s most famous annual event can take advantage of a fantastic travel offer on the city’s tram network.
The popular Family Ticket has been re-introduced for the duration of the Goose Fair, offering families of up to five, including two adults, a day of unlimited travel for just £5.
Families and other visitors can simply glide into Forest Park to join in the fun at the fair that attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors from across the UK and beyond.
Due to the scale of the event, the tram network’s Forest park and ride site will be closed temporarily to make way for the festivities.
Although the tram stop remains open, the car park will be inaccessible to vehicles between 6.00pm on Saturday, September 29 to 6.00am on Wednesday, October 10.
However, around 2,000 spaces will be available at four other park and ride locations around the city.
Visitors to the fair, and anyone who uses the tram more regularly, can also take advantage of a special Kangaroo ticket if they need to combine their journey with train or bus travel.
Florian Le Loroux, Marketing Manager at NET explained: “At any time, the tram offers the easiest and most convenient way to get around the city centre but when there’s such a huge event taking place it makes more sense than ever.
“However, due to the size of the Goose Fair, and depot extension work at the Wilkinson Street site, there’ll be a reduction in the amount of parking spaces available.
“We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and we would also like to remind motorists that park and ride spaces are reserved for tram users only.”
