The South Yorkshire tramway system opened between 21st March 1994 to 23rd October 1995. Stagecoach PLC purchased South Yorkshire Supertram Ltd from the PTE in December 1997 and has the concession to operate and maintain the system until 2024. The ownership of the track and the infrastructure remains with South Yorkshire PTE. Much of the system is on reserved track but there are considerable amounts of street running on the Halfway and Middlewood routes.

The Rotherham tram-train service opened on 25th October 2018, Vossloh-Stadler have supplied 7 of their 3 section Citylink type trams, 4 of which are for the tram-train line, 3 are for use on the rest of the system.
