Hey, anyone know Manchester public transport particularly well? (Yes, I'm looking at you AmazingTrade!). May be a long shot, but I have to get from Piccadilly station to Old Trafford footie ground, setting off at about 7:30am. Will the Metrolink be running? Is walking a realistic option? AAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGH!!!!!!!
Are you going by yourself?

Blimey, I pay £9.45 for my bus ticket (weekly) as South Manchester is Stagecoach (apart from Altricham which is Ariva) and Salford is run by them jokers of a bus company called Firstbus.

arriva are **** where i live, the buses are supposed to come every hour, but they come 40 minutes after the designated time and its normally 2 buses at the same time lol


yeh bus tickets are good if you use them a lot - i should have got a year long met pass, would have been cheaper in the long run....ah well,

metros are very busy when going from alty to manc. in the mornin, but i dunno if it is when goin from manc. on the altrincham line - but i have a feeling it may be

Yep, all alone in the big city. It's stupid; I live 30 miles away from Manc but I know my way around London 10 times better.

Hmmm, oh well.

Have you read this rhyme from Punch before? Perhaps the ever-wonderful Peel wasn't actually so great...

How wonderful is Peel
He changeth with the Time
Turning and Twisting like an Eel
Ascending through the Slime.

Hmmm, wasn't particularly popular amongst the Irish though. The Anglican poor were fine. Catholic Emancipation aside, he wasn't the most genuine of people when it came to the Irish question. And he was from Bury, and went to Christ Church for God's sake! Enough said.

I would definitely get the metrolink if I were you. When you arrive at Manchester Picadilly, goto the main concourse, turn left, go down some escalators. then you need to go straight on don't turn left because the system is unique at Picadilly, they have all the services leaving from one platform there, and all the services arrive at another. So go straight down the stairs in front of you, you'll arrive on the main platform, buy a ticket for Trafford Bar, and wait for a tram which says "Altrincham" on the front.

If you're rushed for time and a Bury tram comes, you can get on that, goto Market Street, then change onto an Altrincham tram, right guys? You're 3x more likely to get an Altrincham tram from market street than Picadilly.
