Metrolink trams in Manchester are set to go up soon and the pension aged pass will be charged from next month.
Most ticket prices on the Metrolink network are to rise from 26 January 2020 and the tram/train concessionary pass for pensioners will be charged £10 a-year from the start of February 2020, the pass will still be free for disabled people.
For more information on the changes for pension aged travel passes:
Zones 3 and 4 are in Trafford and if you get an annual anytime ticket you will be paying £22 more, the charge for an adult single ticket will remain £2.40, all other tickets will rise.
Peter Bagnall from the Breathe Clean Air Group said on Social Media: “Metrolink are increasing fares from the end of this month. A kick in the teeth for Climate Change and doing nothing for Air Pollution…they are supposed to be trying to get people out of cars.”
