Metrolink/rail combined tickets: Pricing Concern

Concern was voiced at the STORM meeting on Tuesday 5th February 2013
That when the Metrolink opens through to Rochdale rail station (widely expected to be Monday 18 March) Metrolink will have to revise some of the fares for combined rail and Metrolink journeys. Currently these are calculated as if all passengers change at Victoria. So the fare from Littleborough to Shaw return even off peak is a whopping £7.40 (Single is not much cheaper). The fare for those changing at Rochdale must surely be much less. Fares involving Littleborough, Smithy Bridge, Castleton and Mills Hill will need to be adjusted. In any event, for anyone travelling in the evening, using a TfGM evening return for the rail portion of the journey and re-booking may save money.
