Greater Manchester’s Metrolink tram system – the largest of its kind in the UK – has welcomed a new operator on board to run the iconic network from Saturday 15 July.

KeolisAmey Metrolink (KAM), a joint venture partnership of leading global public transport operator, Keolis, and infrastructure asset management specialist, Amey, has taken over the reins from former operator, Metrolink RATP Dev Ltd (MRDL).

The change in operator sees the appointment of Aline Frantzen as Managing Director for KAM. Aline joins the business following 17 successful years with Yarra Trams, the world’s largest light rail network in Melbourne, Australia, which is also operated by Keolis.

The new contract, to operate as well as maintain the system, will run for up to 10 years.
