Metrolink are revising services on the run up to Christmas.

Metrolink has announced temporary changes to boost popular services on the Altrincham, Bury, East Didsbury and Oldham lines for the busy festive period. From Monday 7 November through to Friday 23 December double trams will run on every weekday Bury to Etihad Campus and Altrincham to Piccadilly service, rather than on the Bury-Altrincham direct service, offering more capacity throughout the day, (i.e. the double trams will operate all day M-S but only to Piccadilly and the singles have swopped to the Bury Directs).

Double trams will also run on weekday East Didsbury-Shaw & Crompton services between 7am and 7pm.

Full details here.


Northern have announced that due to expected large numbers of Christmas shoppers, Deansgate station will close from 18:00 on Saturdays between 12 November – 17 December. Please use Manchester Oxford Road or Manchester Victoria
