Piccadilly Gardens tram stop
Piccadilly Gardens tram stop
The tram stop at Piccadilly Gardens. Before the Metrolink trams came to Manchester this was Parker Street bus station. Buses still terminate on Parker Street as can be seen on the left but many services now use stops on the other side of Piccadilly Gardens. The trams on the left are stacked up as due to problems on the system no trams were using this part of the line. The tram stop was renovated in 2009 SJ8498 : Metrolink Renovations at Piccadilly Gardens. In the background is the Primark store in the premises formerly occupied by Lewis.

The system is owned by the Greater Manchester Passenger Transport Executive (GMPTE). The routes use a combination of old railway lines and street lines. The first line opened in 1992. The lines to Rochdale and Ashton have also opened
Two new lines are due to open by 2016 to Manchester Airport and East Didsbury.
