Get me there moves a step closer

The countdown towards the introduction of smart ticketing in Greater Manchester – to be known as get me there – has moved a step closer with over 350 smart readers now having been installed across the Manchester Metrolink network. And TfGM have revealed that existing concessionary pass holders could be using the scheme from as early as spring 2014, with all Metrolink passengers able to use get me there by autumn 2014.

Cllr Andrew Fender, Chair of the Transport for Greater Manchester Committee, said: “Smart ticketing has the potential to transform the passenger experience and is as significant a development for public transport in Greater Manchester as the building of Metrolink was back in 1992. We’ll be rolling out the scheme in phases during 2014, making sure that different customer groups get used to it. Travelling with get me there will feel a bit different to start with, but we’re confident passengers will quickly recognise it’s a much easier and hassle-free way of using public transport.”

Passengers can now pre-register their interest in the scheme online at, and if they do they will be kept in the loop throughout the genesis of the scheme.
