Rear of tram 110 Tram interior Cab of tram 124

Sheffield Supertram operates 25 trams, numbered 101–125 (originally numbers 01–25).

Sheffield's trams were built by Duewag, Germany (now part of Siemens). The units have three articulated sections with a total length of 35m (114ft). There are four powered bogies—one under each outer section and two under the centre section. The centre section has no doors, and is high-floor: low-floor access is confined to the middle of the two outer sections, next to the doors. The top speed is 50mph, but the trams operate within road speed limits when running on-street.

Two trams in the current livery Original tram livery White-based Stagecoach livery

The current livery, the fourth to be worn by the fleet, is a variant of Stagecoach group's railway livery, as also seen on vehicles operated by East Midlands Trains and South West Trains. This features a dark blue base with yellow doors; most of the front is red (except for a blue skirt), separated from the blue with an orange band which 'swooshes' up the side of the body behind the cabside windows to the roof. Originally trams sported a two-tone grey colour-scheme, which was replaced by a version of the white-based Stagecoach bus livery. This was later refined with the addition of an Oxford Blue skirt.

Trams were originally fitted with destination blinds at each end, with a coloured blind on the left indicating which line the tram is operating on (Blue, Yellow or Purple), and on the right a blind showing the destination. These have recently been replaced by electronic dot-matrix indicators, which relay the same information, and are supplemented by smaller side indicators.

The system uses 750vDC overhead power supply with single wire pantograph current collection.
