Trams — Trams run in parts of South London between Wimbledon, Croydon, Beckenham and New Addington. The services are frequent and accessible. London’s tram network, Tramlink, was introduced to South London in 2000. The London tram network runs from Wimbledon through Croydon to Beckenham, where it has proven a popular mode of transport. All access to trams is step-free. There is no need to use ramps or any other special features to board. The Tramlink’s map can be found here: www.tfl.gov.uk/gettingaround/9443.aspx
Tramlink trams run every 10 minutes in the daytime on Mondays to Saturdays to Wimbledon, Elmers End and Beckenham Junction and about every seven minutes to New Addington.
When it comes to tickets, trams are treated as part of the bus network. There is a flat fare throughout the bus and tram network, £1.50 (with pre-pay Oyster card).
Bus passes are valid for the whole bus and tram network and are not divided into zones. The standard adult fares for bus passes are:
- 7 Day – £21.20
- 1 month – £81.50
- 1 year – £848.
