Metrolink 3b - Rochdale train station to the town centre

On Monday 31st March 2014 the Metrolink stop opened in the town centre opposite Number One Riverside and the new Transport Interchange providing excellent transport links to the regenerated town centre.

Services run every 12 minutes, calling at one of Rochdale's key employment sites Kingsway Business Park before continuing on to Shaw & Crompton, Oldham Mumps, Central Park and Manchester city centre.

Alternatively Rochdale's other stop at Rochdale railway station has more than 200 park-and-ride spaces available to passengers travelling on Metrolink and work is ongoing to improve the connections to this car park.
