Fares are going up for Robin Hood and Mango card-holders on the trams and buses in Hucknall and Bulwell.

After several years without a price increase, Nottingham Express Transit and Trent Barton say it is now necessary because of rising costs.

From this Sunday (March 26), a single-fare tram trip for Robin Hood pay-as-you-go card-holders will rise to £1.80, with the day cap for trams up to £3.50 and the day cap for trams and buses up to £4.30. Cash season tickets will increase to £4.80 for adults and £2.90 for children.

Mango users will see the cost of single journeys on the tram increase by 10p to £1.80, while the adult day cap will go up to £3.80 and the seven-day cap will go up by £1 to £17.
