Bus and tram travellers can now bulk buy individual days of multi-operator travel with the Robin Hood Flexible Days card.
This new Robin Hood travel card is ideal for workers who are part-time or work from both home and the workplace. The Robin Hood Flexible Days offering travel savings of up to 30% compared to paying by the day. This provides a more affordable option for those who don’t travel on the network every day.
With the Flexible Days card, you can purchase 20 or 50 individual days of travel. These act as unlimited all-day travel passes, and you can use these as and when they’re needed across the Greater Nottingham area.
Use the Robin Hood Flexible Days card on:
- Nottingham City Transport
- trentbarton (except skylink express, red arrow or trentbarton night buses)
- NET tram
- Linkbuses / CT4N
- NottsBus Connect
Robin Hood Flexible Days travel cards can be purchased at the Nottingham Tourism and Travel Centre on Smithy Row (under the Council House) or online at www.robinhoodnetwork.co.uk.
Once you have your Flexible Days card, you can then top-up with an additional 20/50 days via the mobile app or online. If you top-up online, the travel passes can be collected from one of our handy on-street ticketing machines (including the tram ticket machines) or via the Robin Hood ticketing app.
Councillor Audra Wynter, Portfolio Holder for Highways, Transport and Parks at Nottingham City Council, said:
“We’re very aware of the impact of the cost-of-living crisis on our residents and workers at the moment, so anything which can be done to support people at this time is really important.
We also know that many commuters who use city trams and buses might have seen their working patterns change during and since the pandemic, with increased ‘hybrid’ models and days at home rather than the office. With this in mind, these new travel options save money at the same time as providing much-needed flexibility in terms of when they’re used.”
A spokesperson for the Robin Hood Network said,
“With household finances under pressure, the ability to save up to 30% on daily travel costs with Robin Hood Flexible Days travel cards will be a welcome and popular way to pay for travel on Nottingham’s award-winning public transport network.”
The Robin Hood Flexible Days travel project is part of Nottingham and Derby’s Transforming Cities programme. Working in partnership, Nottingham City and Derby City Councils secured £161 million from the Department for Transport. This funding is being used to invest in local transport infrastructure. These investments will improve sustainable transport, support growth, and encourage more low carbon journeys.
