Transport and travel

Nottingham’s public transport system has been voted the best in the UK.

It has a tram network following an investment of an extra £570 million which included a new dedicated stop at QMC and expanded the system into surrounding communities helping to reduce congestion and make commuting easier for many residents.

The city is also-well served by an excellent bus network with live updates on most stops.

NUH works with public transport operators in the region to provide heavily discounted travel schemes for staff.

There are also two free park and ride facilities serving QMC and City Hospital with the Medilink - a shuttle bus that runs between the two hospitals (which is free for staff but has a modest charge for patients and visitors).

The region also has excellent links to other parts of the UK. The M1 and M42 are both within a 25-minute drive of the city centre, as is East Midlands Airport. Nottingham railway station provides a direct route into London St Pancras in less than two hours.
