The latest on public transport

People are continuing to be urged not to use public transport unless absolutely necessary as bus, tram and train services begin to be scaled back amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Reduced tram, train and bus services will be maintained to enable key workers to make essential journeys, but services are being stepped down from today (Sunday 22 March). 

Revised tram, train and bus timetables have been published and passengers that have to make essential journeys are advised to visit TfGM or operators' websites for the latest information.

Metrolink trams will reflect a Sunday service, operating on a 12-minute frequency across all lines, with more doubles in operation across the network to enable social distancing. Weekday trams will start running at 6am and end at 11pm. On Sundays, trams will start running at 7am.

"Trams, trains and buses will be running reduced services and travelshops are operating reduced hours. 

"TfGM schools' services are currently scheduled to operate as normal for children of essential key workers. 

"Concessionary pass holders can now use their passes at all times.
