TWEETING tram passengers can now receive live updates on Metrolink services.

The official Manchester Metrolink Twitter feed has now gone “live”, providing passengers with the latest news from the control room seven days a week.

Information about line running conditions, route changes, disruptions, and weather conditions will be relayed to passengers following @McrMetrolink on Twitter.

It will operate between 6.30am and 7pm on weekdays and 8am to 6pm at weekends, and the feed will also enable two-way communications, providing the Metrolink team, based at Trafford Bar, with the ability to respond to customer comments.

Peter Cushing, Transport for Greater Manchester’s Metrolink director, said: “We have been working hard with the Metrolink operator, MRDL, to establish a live twitter feed providing customers with the latest travel information.

“We want to ensure passengers have the best possible access to live, up-to-date information about services and this new Twitter feed will go a long way towards providing what people want and need.”

Nicola Watson, communications manager for MRDL, said: “Twitter will give us another platform with which to build on our provision of travel information to customers.

“By providing up-to-the-minute details of what’s happening on the Metrolink network we can arm our customers with more accurate travel advice and they, in turn, can make better choices on their journeys.”
