After differentiating between Metrolink and Metroshuttle (tram and bus) we duly arrived at Picadilly Rail station and used the Metrolink to take us to Salford Quays.What a fine system we thought intending to purchase the group day travelcard everyday for our 3 day visit.
Well it was until Metrolink decided to cancel service for maintenance but instead laying on metrolink buses, how did we know the service was cancelled ? it was on the digital signs at the Metrolink station the only problem was it did not tell you where to go for the buses.
At Salford we initially stood in the wrong place, but it was Picadilly Gardens that turned into a run around, imagine it was raining cats and dogs and there we were asking bus drivers where was the Metrolink stop, a few remarked sorry mate we work for a different bus service then after walking and asking at various bus stops we found the stop 300 yards (by now soaking wet) down a sidestreet.
Metrolink short yourselves out and give non Mancunians information on a your digital displays.Edited: 05 November 2013, 21:08
