Supertram Stagecoach visit 24

Stagecoach leaders visit Supertram to bid farewell to 27-year partnership

  • 27-year partnership will end on March 21 
  • South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA) will take over operations  

Stagecoach, the UK’s largest bus and coach operator, have partnered with Supertram for the last 27-years to provide tram services to South Yorkshire. To celebrate the success of the closing partnership, Non-Executive Chairman, Ray O’Toole, visited the Supertram team for a trip down memory lane. 

After a fun filled 27-year partnership, Stagecoach will be parting ways with Supertram March 21 2024. Although changing hands, the same team will be making the transition with customers to South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA) ownership on March 21, 2024. 

The visit saw the return of Supertrams very own hero, Supertram Man, who championed safety around trams, with numerous safety talks at local schools. Previously making an appearance at events such as lighting the "After Dark" bonfire at Don Valley Bowl, Supertram Man helped with charity collections for the Children's Hospital.  

The visit also gave the chance for the team to reflect on previous collaborations which centred the local community Supertram serves daily. The team looked back on images of the reimagined tram by Sheffield artist Luke Horton, which aimed to get people back on board in 2022 following the pandemic. 

After 27-years of connecting the community, the same Supertram team will make the transition to SYMCA and continue their hard work supporting those who rely on the services. 

Ray O’Toole, Non-Executive Chairman for Stagecoach said; "I would like to extend a sincere thank you to the Supertram team. Their commitment to serving the community of South Yorkshire has been pivotal in shaping the success of our 27-year long partnership and we at Stagecoach wish them all the very best in their next chapter with SYMCA.”
