Trambow by Alstom
Alstom has teamed up with East Midlands Railways and Nottingham Express Transit to unveil; a special tram livery to celebrate Pride and the LGBTQ+ community. 
 
NET’s Tram 213 now carries a stylish rainbow design – or ‘trambow’ – which can be seen running on both of Nottingham’s light rail lines, where it will interchange with EMR heavy rail services at Nottingham, Bulwell and Hucknall stations. 
 
They are also promoting the region’s public transport system as a means by which to arrive at Notts Pride in style, while being more eco-friendly and sociable than driving solo. 
 
“Alstom is proud to collaborate with EMR and NET to bring our vibrant ‘trambow’ to Nottingham’s streets in celebration of Pride. Tram 213’s new look is a statement of our collective commitment to diversity, inclusion and the right of every individual to be their authentic self – either as a fare-paying passenger or a colleague,” said Peter Broadley, Services Managing Director UK and Ireland at Alstom. 
 
Tram 213 was built by Alstom at Derby Litchurch Lane Works as part of the first fleet of 15 vehicles for NET, which were manufactured between 2002 and 2003. Ahead of the Nottingham network being expanded in 2015, Alstom also built 22 Citadis trams for NET and the company continues to maintain all 37 vehicles from the Wilkinson Street depot.
