1. Noisy passengers

We’ve all been there – looking out the window, trying to enjoy the scenery, when a loud conversation strikes up or someone decides to shout into their phone.

Tram 101: Always bring headphones.

2. They’re always packed

Leaving us NO personal space when you’re wedged between two people, pretending you’re absolutely fine. Time to double the tram size.

3. Getting an absolute sweat on

It’s hot, it’s sweaty, you’re stood within an inch of the next person and before you’ve even made it to work you’re already dripping in your own body juice.

4. Prices

Some fares are due to increase from January 2018, according to Metrolink, so you may have to stop getting that Starbucks coffee on the walk from the tram stop to work.

5. Delays

It seems even the smallest thing can cause delays these days.

6. Inconsiderate passengers

When people hog the seats with their bags and all you want to do is enjoy your 25 minute tram ride sitting down.

7. Ticket Machines

Waiting for the ticket machine to free up when your tram leaves in 1 minute is an experience to say the least. Not to mention the queues that build up during peak times, or discovering the machine isn’t working. But hey, it’s all part of the Manchester experience, right?

8. Replacement services

Suddenly, the trams aren’t running, but you’ve already bought your ticket. There’s news of a replacement bus, or even worse, a regular bus, and it’s the time when everyone is going home. Chaos.

9. Our best friends aren’t allowed to ride with us

Dogs aren’t allowed to travel on the trams in Manchester, not even if they promise to be super quiet…

10. When the information isn’t clear…

…and people start asking important questions like: “How do I tram?”

11. Embarrassing situations

Sometimes trams can be TOO quiet. Especially when you’re about to do a massive sneeze or your stomach rumbles, and suddenly everyone looks your way. Dire.

12. There’s always something going wrong

Like the ‘crash’ of November 10th that devastated the whole system.

For some people, however, public transport can be an enjoyable experience, even with the rain beating down on the windows and crowds of people piling through the doors.
