Further service reductions on the way

As the impact of the current social distancing restrictions continue to be felt it has been announced that there will be further service reductions on various tramways across the British Isles – Stagecoach Supertram has already reduced their service with changes also on the way for Manchester Metrolink.

Changes to the already revised timetable on Stagecoach Supertram were effective from the start of service on Wednesday 1st April and saw the following frequencies introduced:

Monday-Friday

Blue: up to every 30 minutes between 0600 and 0900, hourly 0900 to 2200

Purple: hourly service between 0600 and 2200

Yellow: up to every 30 minutes between 0600 and 0900, hourly 0900 to 2200

Tram Train: hourly service between 0630 and 1830

Saturday

Blue: hourly service between 0600 and 2200

Purple: hourly service between 0600 and 2200

Yellow: hourly service between 0600 and 2200

Tram Train: hourly service between 0630 and 1830

Sunday

Blue: hourly service between 0800 and 2200

Purple: hourly service between 0800 and 2200

Yellow: hourly service between 0800 and 2200

Tram Train: hourly service between 0830 and 1830

Meanwhile, the current 12 minute frequency on all lines of Manchester Metrolink will continue until the end of service on Sunday 5th April after which the frequency – and times of operation – will be further reduced. As from Monday 6th April all lines will operate every 20 minutes. The hours of operation will be 0600 to 2200 Monday to Saturday and 0700 to 2200 on a Sunday. This service will remain in place until further notice.

With the continued advice to only travel if completely necessary it is likely that there may be further reductions in the UK in the days to come. Interestingly, over in Dublin, Luas is continuing to operate a full service for now.
