How to buy Metrolink tram tickets

You can not pay for a journey on the tram. You must have a ticket before you get on.

Pay by cash (change given) or by credit or debit card (including contactless), for all kinds of tram tickets: from single day trips to annual season tickets.

There's no need to print a ticket, just use your phone or tablet.
