Making buses a priority
We’re making one of the largest investments in Greater Manchester’s bus network for decades – with over 25 miles of the network being either created or improved.
We want to make bus travel a better experience for everyone. These improvements will help people enjoy quicker, more punctual and more reliable bus services along key routes across Greater Manchester.
Our investment will allow cross city bus services to run directly through the heart of Manchester city centre – free from other traffic – so you won’t need to change buses.
On these pages you can find out more about the bus priority package and what it means for you. Whether you travel by bus, bike, car, or on foot – live locally or own a business along one of the routes – the scheme has benefits for everyone.
Our plans offer a brighter future for Greater Manchester as a region, connecting more people with jobs, education, health, leisure and retails centres.
Worked has already started on some of the routes, and the entire bus priority package will be up and running in 2015.
