The Butler's Hill tram stop is adjacent to Butler's Hill, and is on the Hucknall branch of the Nottingham Express Transit.[1]

The former Butler's Hill railway station, was situated on the, now closed, Great Northern Railway's Nottingham to Shirebrook line. The former Midland Railway route from Nottingham to Worksop also passed through Butler's Hill, but the Midland never had a station there. The alignment of the Midland line is now shared by the Robin Hood railway line and Nottingham Express Transit.[2]

The footbridge over the tram stop links Butler's Hill with Bestwood Village via the Mill Lakes, part of Bestwood Country Park. The nearby Broomhill park was the former site of Sherwood Zoo, which went bankrupt in 1976.
