The get me there app lets you buy selected travelcards for use on Greater Manchester’s Metrolink tram system. It means that you can buy Metrolink travelcards anytime, anywhere, without having to queue to get one from a ticket machine.
You can buy 1-day, weekend or 7-day Metrolink travelcards and download them straight to your smart phone. All you need to do is display the travelcard on your phone if asked to do so by a member of Metrolink staff.
The get me there app lets you store your payment details securely, so there’s no need to enter them every time you buy a travelcard. And if you make the same journey regularly, the app will store your previous travelcards so you can easily find the one you want to buy again.
Use the get me there app to:
• Buy Metrolink travelcards using credit/debit cards or Apple Pay
• Track active, purchased and expired travelcards
• Manage your account and set payment preferences
• Get in contact with get me there Customer Services

Please note that to travel on Metrolink you need to have a valid ticket or travelcard, or you could be liable for a standard fare of up to £100. If you are using the get me there app, make sure your phone has enough battery to display your travelcard for the duration of your journey.
Bug fixes and optimisations
Ratings and Reviews
Good app, needs improving
It's great to be able to tickets before you get to the tram stop or if you see the tram pulling up, great that they get emailed to you but shame that all tickets are not available, only adult single riders (as is one alway, return, day ticket). There are no child or family tickets which is one thing that would make it great, especially when there are times I get to my tram stop and the machines done take cash/card or are completely broken down. This is the only thing that stopped me giving it 5 stars.
Broken app, discriminatory system
This app refuses to reliably respond to taps meaning once you’ve purchased a ticket you cannot access it (iPhone 12 latest iOS ). This basically means you have to buy a paper ticket, which wrongly penalises those with less economic privilege (who are more likely to have handsets older than one year and less likely to be able to afford two tickets).
Secondly they don’t take Amex meaning those without an alternative method of payment on their person may be forced to find alternative means of transport - this too is discriminatory especially since Visa Credit charge a higher fee than Amex, and far behind London who take all three major forms of payment card.
Sort your app out, take normal payment methods.
In a very short time this app has become essential to my daily life as someone who doesn’t own a car. It couldn’t be easier to use, and having my ticket on my iPhone in electronic format is brilliant. I can’t think of anything at the moment that needs to change in this app, but if I do have any suggestions I will be back with them. Note to developers, please try to respond to reviews more often because it would be nice to know you actually read the reviews we take the time to post. 😊
