COVID-19 Vaccination Update

Effective from Monday 25 January and until further notice, all concessionary pass holders will be able to board a bus in Nottingham or the wider Nottinghamshire county area for free before 09:30am on weekdays. Concessions that possess either a Nottingham City Council or Nottinghamshire County Council issued pass will be able to use the tram for free before 09:30am on weekdays too. We have decided to do this for our residents in conjunction with Nottinghamshire County Council and local bus and tram operators to help you make any early morning COVID-19 vaccination appointments , but please try to avoid appointments times before 09:30am as the buses may be busier. The take-up will be monitored and the benefit may be withdrawn should buses or trams start to fill up too much over the coming weeks and months.
