Remembrance Day travel advice

8 November 2018
Poppy Tram Resized 2

If you're travelling this Sunday (11 November) please plan ahead of the Remembrance Day events taking place in the city centre.

Metrolink services will stop shortly before 11am as the nation observes a two-minute silence to mark the date.

There will also be a number of minor changes to tram services for the Remembrance Day event taking at St Peter’s Square.

We have created a special travel advice page containing all the relevant information and a bespoke walking route map to help you get around the city centre.

Remember to plan ahead as a number of towns will also be holding their own parade and service, which may result in some road closures and bus diversions.

Later on in the day, Manchester City host Manchester United at the Etihad (kick-off 4.30pm).

A crowd of 55,000 is expected with roads and public transport likely to be busier than usual.

Please allow more time for your journey and consider using public transport.
