Supertram vehicles are clean, quiet, spacious and reliable. Each vehicle is washed externally and internally at the end of its working day and full valets take place on a monthly basis.
All trams have on board conductors for ticket sales and customer care. Most ticket types can be purchased from the conductor although Monthly "megariders" are only available from Travel Information Centres
... and 72 to Chapeltown.
It is good to have a well-thought-out route numbering policy; one of the huge benefits of an effective partnership. But we haven't got one. fbb will leave readers to wonder whether "got one" refers to a route numbering scheme or an effective partnership!
But you can't help being left with the thought that SL2 to Stannington and SL3 to Killamarsh might have been more successful had they been included in the Supertram journey planner and the "Tram Only" fare deals. Or even, perish he thought, included in the Supertram web site! Said Stannington residents will also find their fares become very un- as they pay First a king's ransom to get from Stanningon to Malin Bridge, then another bag of pennies to catch the tram into town. Of course they won't and Uncle Brian will lose the occasional passenger who once did make he transfer.
We must remember that these plans are all "out to consultation", so the residents of Stannington and Killamarsh may be incensed at their loss and thus able to persuade the partners to put away their sharpened schedule slicers.
There they go again.
And on Monday, another unhelpful Partnership
