Remember, unless exempt face coverings are compulsory on all tram services across the British Isles. The information provided above is the basic service information taken from the official websites of the systems mentioned. Some websites are much better than others with timetables often very difficult to find (if at all!) as the service frequency is considered to be so regular that you don’t need to know exactly when the next tram may run! Where normal timetable is shown above this is the same frequency as was running pre-Covid. If you are planning to travel on any system we advise you check before travelling, not only for the service running but also any special rules in place. As always we provide this information in good faith but accept no responsibility for any errors (but if you do see any please let us know!).
