Travelling around Manchester by tram

Fast, frequent journeys across Greater Manchester

Manchester's Metrolink tram system has been developed to encourage easier and faster travel in the city centre and beyond.

Connecting all major railway stations and tourist attractions, the Metrolink runs every few minutes so you don't need a timetable, you can just turn up and travel anytime from early morning until late in the evening; don't forget to purchase your ticket from the machine at the platform before you board.

Plan your journey using the Metrolink map or download the free Metrolink  smartphone app to find your nearest station, plan your journey and access service updates.

The Metrolink network is continually developing and taking you to more destinations than ever before. For the latest on changes to the network visit
