Robin Hood Flexible Days travel cards are available with 20 or 50 individual days of travel on, which can be used as and when they’re needed across the Greater Nottingham area.

Councillor Audra Wynter, Portfolio Holder for Highways, Transport and Parks at Nottingham City Council, said: “We’re very aware of the impact of the cost-of-living crisis on our residents and workers at the moment, so anything which can be done to support people at this time is really important. We also know that many commuters who use city trams and buses might have seen their working patterns change during and since the pandemic, with increased ‘hybrid’ models and days at home rather than the office. With this in mind, these new travel options save money at the same time as providing much-needed flexibility in terms of when they’re used.”

A spokesperson for the Robin Hood Network said, “With household finances under pressure, the ability to save up to 30% on daily travel costs with Robin Hood Flexible Days travel cards will be a welcome and popular way to pay for travel on Nottingham’s award-winning public transport network”

The Robin Hood Flexible Days travel project is part of Nottingham and Derby’s Transforming Cities programme. Working in partnership, Nottingham City and Derby City Councils secured £161 million from the Department for Transport to invest in local transport infrastructure that will improve sustainable transport, support growth, and encourage more low carbon journeys.
