Salford Quays Link bus service launches, gives MediaCityUK a quick hop to a rail link

After a premature appearance on the North West Journey Planner site, the number 9 Salford Quays Link bus service, connecting Salford Crescent rail station with Salford Shopping City at Pendleton, Salford Quays and MediaCityUK, saw its first day of operation today.

With a Monday-Friday daytime frequency of every 10 minutes, and running every 15 minutes during evenings and Sundays, this publicly funded service takes just 16 minutes end-to-end. A link to Salford Crescent means that MediaCityUK and the Quays are now easily accessible by public transport from the north, with many services from Lancashire and beyond serving the station. 

The service is operated by Maytree Travel and is funded by TFGM, Salford City Council and the University of Salford.  Ticket prices fall into the “My, that’s cheap” category, with a £1 flat adult fare, a £1.60 day ticket and £6 7-day pass.

Full details can be found in this timetable leaflet PDF download.
