IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT CHANGES TO TRANSPORT SERVICES THIS WEEKEND

Due to coronavirus bus, rail and Metrolink services across Greater Manchester are operating to a reduced frequency at the moment.

Transport services will change again over the bank holiday weekend and some services will be reduced over and above the timetables for a normal bank holiday.

TfGM has been working closely with partners and transport operators across Greater Manchester to keep key workers moving and supporting vital services.

This coming weekend is going to be exceptionally busy and challenging for many key workers, and for many the bank holiday has been cancelled or put on hold – with normal operations running throughout.

We would urge anyone who has to make an essential journey to check before they travel and allow extra time for their journeys.

To find out the latest travel information  visit  https://tfgm.com/coronavirus/easter-weekend or call the TfGM Contact Centre on 0161 244 1000 between 7am and 6pm Good Friday and Easter Monday and 7am – 8pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Please do not travel unless it is absolutely essential – stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives.

If your journey is essential, drive, cycle or walk if you can.

Avoid public transport and only use it if you have no other option.
