Wheelchair tram access

Wheelchair users and Metrolink trams

All Metrolink trams and tram stops are accessible for wheelchair users.

Every tram has:

  • an area for people who use a wheelchair or mobility scooter
  • wider priority seats with more space, marked for people who have trouble standing
  • emergency call points

All tram stops have:

  • a ramp, lift, or escalator
  • step-free access for wheelchair-users
  • CCTV and emergency call-points

If you need more time to get off the tram, use the passenger help-point next to the wheelchair bay to tell the driver.
