Manchester Metrolink - advert liveries

Whilst Manchester Metrolink was a relative latecomer to advert liveries (T68 1015 receiving a "Get Our Metrolink Back on Track" special livery in September 2004 with the first commerical advertising in November 2011 when 1003 received partial adverts for Manchester's Christmas Markets) it has become the system with the biggest variety of adverts in recent years with many of the M5000s receiving vinyl wraps for both short-term and longer-term advertising contracts. The standard practice of advertising liveries on Metrolink is for the tram to receive a full wrap on the whole tram except for the cabs with contravision used more often than not.

Both T68s and M5000s are included in this list.

This list is very much a "work in progress" with some dates missing. If you can help fill in any of the gaps or notice any other errors or ommissions please let us know by email.
