UK Tram - A Single Voice for the Industry

UK Tram is the voice of the Tram industry in the UK and represents operators, promoters, manufacturers, contractors and consultants covering not just tramways but also Ultra Light Rail and Personal Rapid Transit modes.

With the emphasis on economic growth and carbon reduction, the right sustainable transport solutions are needed in our towns and cities. we believe trams deliver these goals and UK Tram can help point you in the right direction, whether you are thinking of a tram, ULR or PRT system.

We have published a number of guidance notes and we have an ambitious programme of further work tasked to us from the Minister, Norman Baker, in his report 'Green Light for Light Rail'.

We are delighted to take on this responsibility and by visiting this website you can keep up to date with the programme and each work stream.
