Piccadilly Gardens is a tram stop in the City Zone of Greater Manchester's Metrolink light rail system. It is located beside Piccadilly Gardens in Manchester city centre, and serves both as a transport hub (by integrating with the adjacent Manchester Piccadilly bus station), and interchange station (which can be used for changing between Metrolink lines).[1]

Piccadilly Gardens tram stop opened on 27 April 1992, as part of Metrolink's Phase 1. The station was rebuilt during 2009 with a wider platform and a new canopy, reopening on 2 November 2009. Part of the City Zone, the stop is one of the most used on the Metrolink network.[2]


Services mostly run every 12 minutes on all routes.
