Transdev has been shortlisted by Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) to submit a bid to operate and maintain the Metrolink tram network. TfGM is issuing an invitation to negotiate in 2016, with the new 10 year contract commencing in July 2017 after a six month mobilisation period.

With a strong team in place we are looking forward to developing a high quality, innovative offer that is fitting for the largest tram network in the UK.”
