Manchester on the move
The large piazza, which is also home to several modern office buildings, is served by another more recent Manchester icon: the city’s yellow and silver trams. St Peter’s Square is the interchange between the original cross-city line, which opened in 1992, and the Second City Crossing, which carried its first services in February 2017.
Up to 45 trams now pass through the station every hour in each direction, with the fleet of 120 M5000 Bombardier LRVs serving a 97km network with 92 stations and seven lines. Manchester on the move
