The A6 road (Manchester Road) passes through the district with frequent bus services (36 and 37) linking Bolton, Farnworth and Walkden with Swinton, Salford and Manchester. There is also an hourly daytime only Monday to Saturday service (484) through Wardley which links Hope Hospital (recently renamed "Salford Royal Hospital"), Salford with Prestwich via Eccles, Monton, Wardley, Swinton, Pendlebury, Agecroft and Rainsough.
The district is served by Moorside railway station which is located on Moorside Road close to the junction with Chorley Road (A6), Swinton. Until 1974 the station was known as "Moorside and Wardley railway station". The station is on the Manchester Victoria to Wigan line via Atherton.
Until fairly recently Wardley had three public houses, the Morning Star, the Red Lion and the Brook Tavern, but the last has now closed down and has recently been converted into a small Tesco store. The Brook Tavern, as its name implied, stood on (the Wardley side of) Sindsley Brook, the historic boundary between Swinton and Worsley. The thriving Morning Star pub is run by the Manchester area's Joseph Holt's Brewery.
