Greater Manchester is well served by rail, so why not beat the traffic and take the train!
Avoid the traffic and delays and hop on the train to get you to and from Manchester. Fast and frequent services operate seven days a week!
Moston, Mills Hill, Castleton and Rochdale all have regular services.
There is capacity on off-peak services Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 4pm, and after 6.30pm. It’s cheaper during these hours too!
The 181 and 182 bus services are still running during the works and have so far been running consistently to time. Other local services are also operating well.
It may be quicker to take a bus on other roads with regular services to and from the city centre. Several high frequency services go via A62 Oldham Road to Manchester, Oldham and beyond!
Check with your local bus operator for live service information.
During the works local and shorter trips in the Foxdenton, Butler Green and Chadderton areas may be quicker (and healthier) by walking.
Play your part in reducing congestion and improving the air we breathe by taking a brisk stroll whether that’s to work, taking the kids to school or to the match.
