The Heatons are well connected to the public transport network. Mainline rail services are available from Heaton Chapel Station located on Heaton Moor Road close to the Heaton Chapel/Moor border. Residents also have the option of connecting to mainline services via East Didsbury Station. East Didsbury Metro Link stop also provides a convenient point to access the Metro Link network. Bus services operate across the neighbourhoods at high frequency, information about routes and service numbers can be obtained from TfGM’s route planning web page. Both of the above rail station provide links to a wide range of local services and short journey times to Stockport and Manchester Piccadilly to allow connections to high speed national services. Heaton Chapel Station has an active friends group. The group made up entirely of volunteers, dedicate much of their free time to improving the appearance of the station by continually updating and improving the garden areas.
We have close links with the Friends of Heaton Chapel Station and have had guest speakers from Transport for Greater Manchester at our monthly meetings. This has included discussion of initiatives to encourage use of public transport as well as updates on developments.
