You can now travel by tram with contactless cards and devices using the smart readers

Travel all day and we’ll work out the total fares for your day’s journeys for you, making it even easier to get around on Metrolink. You will be charged the adult single and 1-day travelcard prices.

You’ll never pay more than the daily cap

The stops where you touch-in and touch-out will show us the zone(s) you have travelled through. From £1.40 for a short hop up to £7 for a 1-day anytime travelcard (or £4.80 off-peak) for all zones, as long as you remember to touch-in and touch-out at the start and end of each journey, you won’t pay any more!

The choice is yours

All the current ways to pay will still be available and may offer better value if you qualify for a discount or if you buy 7-day, 28-day or annual tickets.
