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.

Bus operators and other stakeholders are being asked for their views on plans to ensure that passengers are guaranteed the highest quality of service once the bus priority package is delivered.

To protect the value of the investment for passengers, a special partnership is proposed, committing bus operators to a minimum level of service standard and quality, and TfGM and local authority partners to maintaining the quality of the infrastructure on which those services will run.

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 retail centres.
