Supertram fares have been frozen to reflect the next phase of rail replacement works due to take place in Sheffield.

Stagecoach has announced the price freeze will apply to single tram tickets as well as tram and bus dayriders and megariders.

The freeze has been made in recognition of the disruption the next round of works will cause to Sheffielders as old rails are replaced.

The works begin in Hillsborough and Malin Bridge on Saturday. Engineers will then continue their work in other areas of the city until September.

Supertram managing director Margaret Kay said: “We are mindful that the on-going rail replacement work will have an impact on some customers over the coming months and we want to show our gratitude for their patience and understanding.

“The improvement works will benefit all tram users by ensuring the system is fit for purpose for the long-term and we look forward to attracting more people on to our services in the future.”

Supertram has also launched a 25 per cent discount on its 13-week tram megarider in recognition of the inconvenience the works will cause.
