Passenger journeys on the Manchester Metrolink in the United Kingdom 1992-2019 The Manchester Metrolink recorded 43.7 million passenger journeys in 2018/19. Since beginning its operation in April 1992 as the United Kingdom’s first modern tram system, the Metrolink has grown to become an integral part of public transportation within the city. The Metrolink is one of currently nine light rail systems in the country, next to those in London’s docklands, Croydon, Birmingham, Sheffield, Newcastle, Nottingham, Blackpool and Edinburgh.
