Lost property

I've lost something

Our process for handling lost property has recently changed.  Items of value collected by our depot cleaning teams will be transferred to police stations closest to the depot twice a week.  Items of value include passports, mobile phones, laptops, wallets, electronic devices, handbags and medicine. 

Regrettably, other items will be disposed of.

Passengers regularly find lost property at tram stops or on trams and hand it in to their local police station. Unfortunately, we have no control over this and suggest that if you are unable to locate your item at one of our local police stations, try other police stations.

Below is a list of routes with local police stations and contact details. Please allow up to 4 days for a lost item of value to be handed in to police.
