METROLINK COMES TO PARRS WOOD
Students travelling from Chorlton, Withington, West Didsbury or Didsbury Village can now enjoy an alternative mode of transport to ensure that they arrive to school on time. The Metrolink line to East Didsbury is now open.
The 4.4km (2.7 miles) extension to the existing South Manchester line has five new stops, with services calling at Withington, Burton Road, West Didsbury, Didsbury Village and East Didsbury.
Services will run every 12 minutes all day Monday to Saturday and between 9am and 6pm on Sundays and bank holidays (15 minutes at all other times).
Tickets MUST be bought in advance. If you are aged 5 to 15 you can pay the child fares until you are 16, when you will pay adult fares. If you are 11 or older you must carry proof of your age to pay the child fare on Metrolink trams. When you are 11 or older you can get an igo pass that proves you should pay the child fare. As an extra an benefit an igo pass lets you continue to pay child fares until 31 August after your 16th birthday. For more information about igo visit: igo website. If you do not buy a ticket you risk a fine of £100.
Please remind your son/daughter to represent themselves, their families and their school in the best light as they travel to and from school. I am extremely proud of our students and I wish for the community to share that pride in our young people.
