    BY TRAM:The city of Manchester hosts one of the newest tram sysems in Europe, and it's quite good fun trying it out! PEAK travel times: before 9.30 AM,
    OFF PEAK travel times: after 9.30 AM. The first trams run from 6 AM Monday - Saturday and from 10 AM on Sundays. Trams run every 6 minutes (Mon-Fri 7.30AM-6PM, Sat 9.30AM-5.30PM), So arriving on time at a tram station will mean you have an average wait of just 3 minutes for the next tram to arrive!
    On Sundays the trams run at 15 minute intervals before 10AM and after 5PM. Between those hours Sunday trams run every 12 minutes. Tickets can be purchased from ticket vending machines at all stations. These machines do not accept copper coins or notes but do give change. Daily tickets are only valid on the date purchased. Single ticket journeys must be completed within 90 minutes. Hope this hasn't confused you!

    Bus from terminals to station

    It seems that the airport has excellent links between terminals, the rail station and then all destinations outwards. Cheap and very efficient.

    Manchester to Bury

    Bus

    This is the bus that took me to Bury. It was mostly empty initially, but gradually, it gets filled up, as we move towards Bury.
