You can 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 and 7-day travelcard prices.

You’ll never pay more than the weekly cap

From £1.40 for a short hop up to a maximum of £7.10 for a 1-day anytime travelcard (£4.90 off-peak) or £31 for all your journeys Monday to Sunday, if you travel in all zones, we’ll apply the cap that fits.

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 early bird bonus - exclusive to contactless!

Avoid the rush and touch-in to start all journeys before 7am on weekdays (or after 9.30am) and your daily cap will be the off-peak travelcard price.

For journey history and receipts

You can see your journeys, check charges and get statements online for the payment cards you use to travel contactless.

The choice is yours

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