About Tram Train

Since October 2018, passengers in South Yorkshire are the first in the country to benefit from the innovative Tram Train pilot. The special tram-type vehicles use pioneering technology to run on both Sheffield's tramlines and the rail network to Rotherham.

Funded by the Department for Transport, the industry pilot is a partnership between South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE), Network Rail and Stagecoach Supertram, to test the connectivity and economic potential of Tram Train technology to see if it can be used elsewhere. The pioneering project brings together innovation, state-of-the-art technology and the existing rail and tram infrastructures to give passengers better journeys.

A year after its launch, the Tram Train marked its one millionth passenger, celebrated a 100% customer satisfaction rate and received recognition from the global rail sector at the prestigious Global Light Rail Awards. Transport partners leading the project were presented with the 'Team of the Year' award with the scheme itself receiving Highly Commended in the 'Project of the Year' category.
