About Tram Train 

The Government funded Tram Train programme is a partnership between SYPTE, Network Rail, Stagecoach Supertram and Northern Rail piloting pioneering technology which allows passengers to make a single continuous journey connecting tram stops and conventional rail stations.

Three Tram Trains an hour travel on the Supertram network from Sheffield Cathedral to Meadowhall South, before proceeding over a new section of track linking the tram line to the rail track, called the Tinsley Chord, and on to the national rail network to Parkgate Shopping Park via Rotherham Central station. Journey times are around 27 minutes from Cathedral to Rotherham Parkgate, and you can buy tickets from the conductor when you board the service.
