Metrolink Fares go up 26 January

by timpickstone on 15 January, 2020

Greater Manchester’s Council leaders have agreed ticket prices on Metrolink will go up on 26 January 2020.

The peak ‘anytime travel’ 3 zones for Prestwich to Manchester goes up from £6.00 to £6.10. The off-peak 3 zone ticket goes up £4.20 to £4.30. An annual ticket Prestwich to Manchester goes from £930 to £967 – a 4% rise.

This is the third year running that Metrolink ticket prices have been put up by Council Leaders – about 15% over 3 years. This is despite the fact that (by their own estimates) 1 in 8 passengers don’t buy a ticket.

Our view is that better fare collection, such as conductors on trams, would mean that ticket prices could be frozen.
