From Saturday 23 November until Sunday 22 December, Metrolink’s busiest lines will run a six-minute service for up to two-and-a-half extra hours in the evening, until 9pm – allowing customers to take advantage of increased capacity and more frequent services.

Services that will run until 9pm are below. All currently run until approximately 8pm Monday – Friday and 6.30pm on Saturdays.

• Bury – Altrincham
• Ashton – Eccles
• East Didsbury – Shaw and Crompton

Trams will also continue to run at least an hour later on Friday and Saturday nights. Example of last services below. St Peter’s Square (SPS) tram stop used for illustrative purposes.
