Tram Ticket Dodgers Face Likely Fines Increases!

There are plans being made to increase the fine levied on tram passengers caught without paying a fare. The plan is to increase the penalty notice from its current £10 to £70.With a discount offered for swift payment.

I am sure that most tram service passengers will understand the reason for this move.

The new deterrent most likely will come into operation early in the New Year…

The tram is an important transport link, I am convinced it should be expanded within this city and that should be sooner rather than later. Hopefully our City Leaders will see the benefits of an extension within our city boundaries, and valid though the extensions currently announced are to the sub-region. I hope that Wolverhampton doesn’t get left behind and just becomes the end of a line…..that would be damaging!

Remember we have to plan for the future not just for today!
