Simpler fares system the next stop for Metrolink

The four zone system – which will deliver easy to understand and better value fares for millions of passengers across the network – will be introduced in early 2019, alongside the pre-planned fare increase.

When factored in, 78.5% of fares are lower under the zonal system than they would have been under the current system, while 10% are the same and 11.5% are higher.
