Ashton Moss Metrolink Station is a tram stop built as part of Phase 3b of the Manchester Metrolink. The station opened on 9 October 2013,[2] ahead of the originally-publicised schedule of the winter of 2013–14.[3] The stop has an island platform, and is located on Lord Sheldon Way near the Ashton Moss leisure complex and Snipe Retail Park on Ashton New Road.[4] The station is served by a 200 space Park + Ride car park, with electric vehicle parking facilities.


Trams are scheduled along the East Manchester line westbound towards Manchester Piccadilly station before continuing through the city centre towards other destinations, whilst eastbound trams head towards Ashton-under-Lyne. Trams run every 12 minutes Monday-Saturday daytime, increasing to every 6 minutes at peak times. On Sundays and Bank Holidays, this reduces to a 15-minute service for much of the day.[3]
