Jordan Lewis started this petition to Transport for Greater Manchester

A new Manchester tram line (between Crumpsall and Trafford Centre) opens in April 2020 and yet, desperately needed new tram vehicles don't arrive on the Metrolink system until August 2020.

We don't believe that regular tram commuters can cope with the removal of trams from other unsafe and overcrowded lines to support a new one. The Trafford Centre line should not open until new vehicles and extra capacity is in place. 

Your necessary travel infrastructure is about to get worse, please sign to help keep us all moving. 

  • Had to wait on a tram platform unable to board several passing busy trams? Sign this!
  • Watched commuters with accessibility issues or children unable to board trams? Sign this!
  • Fainted on an overheated tram or watched someone else faint? Sign this!
  • Has it taken you double or triple the time to get home on match day because of reduced service? Sign this!
  • Had your face squished up against a tram door, complained and had @MCRMetrolink's generic copy and pasted Twitter reply? Please. Sign this!

Let's stop the chaos. 

This petition unfortunately won't help your journeys get better but it could STOP more disruption. With tram fare's about to increase, surely this is the least you deserve? If this petition gets enough signatures - it will be delivered to Transport for Greater Manchester.

Metrolink's stance is that trams for the new Trafford line were delivered a long time ago but are these trams chilling in the depot? No. They're in use, delivering 'an advanced' service which will be hindered by the arrival of the new line.
