Bicycle

Active travel (walking/cycling)

MediaCity is easy to reach by bike or on foot using a network of direct, safe and attractive cycling and walking routes. Located along the Irwell River Park, many routes utilise the Manchester Ship Canal, the River Irwell and the Bridgewater Canal to provide safe traffic-free journeys to MediaCity.

National Cycle Network (NCN) Route 55 runs through the heart of MediaCity to Salford, Chorlton and South Manchester.

We currently have 650 bike spaces (including a TfGM Cycle Hub), offer cycle storage inside our residential buildings and have developed a user group with TfGM to give information and updates to all cyclists.

We have a dedicated MediaCityUK cycle map showing the key commuter cycle corridors into MediaCityUK. Visit the B.U.G site to learn more.

Tram 2

Tram

As well as having our own dedicated tram stop in the centre of MediaCity, we also have two further Metrolink lines within walking distance – the Eccles line and the brand-new Trafford Park line.

The Eccles line runs from Manchester City Centre to Eccles via Salford Quays, but has a direct stop straight into the heart of MediaCity, with a service to the city centre conveniently every 12 minutes.

This line also connects straight through Cornbrook Metrolink stop, which provides the interchange to the southern suburbs of Altrincham, Didsbury and Manchester Airport

The Trafford Park Metrolink extension now has a station outside the Imperial War Museum North, increasing access to MediaCity. This offers both a quicker route from the City Centre, as well as connecting to The Trafford Centre.
