The majority of modern tram services in the UK have developed high levels of access. Much like buses, tram companies are not obliged by law to carry mobility scooters, but some will if they meet specific criteria.
Currently, of the six tram operators only some carry a permit scheme, so you should always check the specific details with the individual operators.
It’s not always possible, or desirable to book your journey in advance and you may prefer to organise this yourself. If this applies to you, here are some key points to consider before you start your journey:
As with travelling by bus, your scooter must be Class 2 type and meet certain size limits.
We know our customers are delighted that their Quingo gives them the freedom to travel as they please, whether this means visiting friends or family, doing their daily shop or simply going out for some fresh air.
However, for longer journeys involving public transport, there are often a few more things to consider.
