Where does Manchester Metrolink actually go?
This is a Google Map, overlaying the routes and station locations of Manchester’s Metrolink tram system on an actual map, rather than the rather random schematic diagrams regularly used by TfGM. The point being that if you know where a place is, and want to know how close the Metrolink goes, the diagram is not very helpful since it gives no clue as to the directions the lines take in reality. For a better designed graphic style Metrolink map I would suggest the far clearer one here, which also has the decency to give some consideration to the points of the compass.
The overlay below shows the current lines and the lines due to open in the future. You can click on the lines or stations for further details. Please note that not all lines are current – several are still in the proposal or development stages – click the line to check its status!
Please leave any comments or questions below, and if you wish to see the map directly in Google Maps it can be found here (the linked version also includes a complete alphabetic list of stations linked to the map).
