TRAM & TAXI PARTNERSHIP TO OFFER CUSTOMERS DISCOUNT FARES
The tram network in Nottingham has partnered with a local 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 local bus service meant that some customers were now 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% 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, commented: “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.”
Hucknall-based iDEAL CARS was formed in August this year and provides a range of modern vehicles with fully licensed and experienced drivers for private hire bookings across Nottingham.
Director, Ian Brough explained: “We already offer a cheaper alternative to other taxi firms in the Hucknall area, so our 10% discount should make our fares even lighter on the pocket of NET customers.
“We’re 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.”
