​Active Travel

We are committed to encouraging walking and cycling in Greater Manchester and making it even easier and more attractive for people to do so.

The plans and policies included in the Local Transport Plan underline this commitment and will see us supporting and investing in facilities and routes in the right places that will also bring public transport services within a short walk or ride. Cycle parking is a key part of this and we are already investing in cycle parking facilities at almost every Metrolink stop on the expanding network.

We appreciate that safety and security are important considerations for people when it comes to walking and cycling and we'll be taking steps to improve facilities in this regard.

We will also actively promote the health benefits of walking and cycling, will work with Local Authorities to build suitable routes into new developments, and will also work with colleagues to deliver cycle training services.
