Travel for less during the summer holidays

As the school summer holidays approach, here’s a round-up of the best ways to get around as a group, with or without children.

Looking for ideas for cheap and free things to do this summer? Take a look here. 

Don’t forget, under-5s travel free on NCT, Trentbarton and NET trams!

Nottingham City Transport Grouprider ticket

A Grouprider covers 5 people for UNLIMITED travel all day – so its ideal for when you might be hopping on and off of buses with a group of the same people all day.

Five people can mean

  • One adult and up to three children
  • Two adults and up to three children
  • Two adults and no children

But one of the five must be an adult over the age of 19.

Buy a Grouprider either on the bus with contactless or exact change, or using the NCTX app. There are two pricing options, one which covers the entire network and a cheaper option for those who are travelling in Nottingham.

NET Tram Group Tickets

You can catch the tram with a Group Ticket too! Either one or two adults can travel and up to 3 children – but don’t forget, it’s also a great deal for just two adults as it will work out cheaper than the cost of two single all day tickets if you’re travelling together.


Trentbarton offer zigzag group, allowing up to 5 people to travel across their network all day for £17.
