Ashton Moss Metrolink Station is a tram stop built as part of Phase 3b of the Manchester Metrolink. The station opened on 9 October 2013,[2] ahead of the originally-publicised schedule of the winter of 2013–14.[3] The stop has an island platform, and is located on Lord Sheldon Way near the Ashton Moss leisure complex and Snipe Retail Park on Ashton New Road.[4]

Services[edit]

Trams are scheduled along the East Manchester line westbound towards Manchester Piccadilly station before continuing through the city centre towards other destinations, whilst eastbound trams will head towards Ashton-under-Lyne. Trams will run every 12 minutes Monday-Saturday daytime, increasing to every 6 minutes at peak times. On Sundays and Bank Holidays, this reduces to a 15 minute service for much of the day.[3]
