The voice of Light Rail

UK Tram is the authoritative voice of the light rail sector in the UK and Ireland. We represent operators, promoters, manufacturers, contractors and consultants involved not only in tramways and metros but also the expanding ultra and very light rail and personal rapid transit sectors.

Previous Governments have acknowledged the important role that light rail can play in transforming our towns and cities and UK Tram has stepped up to the challenge of helping the sector to grow and become more relevant and vibrant across the country as a whole.
