Bombardier Incentro at Wilford Lane Alsthom Citadis at Lace Market Tram interior

NET operates 37 trams. The original fleet of 15 Bombardier Incentros, delivered in 2003, were joined in 2013–14 by an additional 22 Alsthom Citadis trams for the extensions to Clifton and Beeston. They are numbered 201–237, following on from Nottingham's first generation trams which were numbered up to 200. Many of the trams are named after local characters; in July 2004 all of the initial batch were named, with the some of the second batch receiving names during 2014 and 2015.

Power is supplied from a 750vDC overhead system, with pantograph current collection. A single trolley wire is used on the mainly street-running section between Station Street and Wilkinson Street, on the slow single line section between Cinderhill and Phoenix Park which involves three road crossings in very quick succession, and on the Phase Two lines to Clifton and Beeston which feature a large amount go street running. On the faster reserved track sections from Wilkinson Street to Cinderhill and Hucknall, catenary is used, except for the northbound platforms at Bulwell Forest, Moor Bridge and Butler's Hill, and the non-preferred platform at Hucknall, which use trolley wire.

CCTV

side-view CCTV saloon CCTV Front/rear CCTV Front/rear CCTV

NET makes extensive use of Closed Circuit Television (CCTV). As well as the cameras covering the platforms at tram stops, they are fitted in various places on the trams themselves. All trams have cameras mounted on both sides at both ends, which point back along the sides of vehicle to provide the driver with a clear view of the doors and platform before starting off from a stop. In addition, experiments are being conducted with CCTV on the front/rear of trams, to record traffic offences by motorists on and near tram tracks, and also inside to provide coverage of the passenger saloon, for increased staff and passenger safety.
