Posted on January 14th, 2018, by The Chairman

Paul Wilkinson writes ….

Further Details are emerging of the changes to Metrolink services from 28 January:

• earlier trams from Altrincham and directs to Bury Mon to Sat; and later trams on Su and BH from city to Altrincham

• Bury trams from Platform 2 at Altrincham, Piccadilly trams from Platform 1.

First tram from Altrincham to Piccadilly : Mon to Sat 0549 Sun and BH: 0649

First tram from Altrincham to Bury direct: Mon to Fri: 0655, Sat 0855, no Su

Last tram from Altrincham to Piccadilly:
Sun to Thurs: 2337
Fri and Sat: 0037 (with couple of later trams to Old Trafford Only)

Last tram from Piccadilly to Altrincham:
Sun to Thurs: 2331
Fri and Sat: 0031

The allowance of ten minutes at Altrincham to change driving ends should negate the recent increasing need to turn trams short at Timperley especially in the late afternoon.

  1. Andrew Macfarlane Says:

    So the last tram from Piccadilly station to Altrincham on Monday to Thursday will be much earlier than at present. Currently it is 23.47 and it will become (as you say above) 23.31. That could well catch people out when the new timetable comes in.

  2. Paul Wilkinson Says:

    Similarly are the last trams on Fri and Sat night – at 0031 rather than 0047. The later trams still run but only to Trafford Bar for the depot.

    System changes from Sunday:
