​Metroshuttle

Metroshuttles are free buses linking the main rail stations, car parks, shopping areas and businesses in Manchester city centre.

New routes and times

We’ve changed the routes and times to offer improved services to help you get around the city. There’s now a direct link between Piccadilly and Victoria train stations, with more frequent services from Piccadilly Station, Oxford Road Station, Deansgate Station and Deansgate-Castlefield Metrolink stop.
