Greater Manchester bus consultation

20 Nov 2019

Have your say on how buses in Greater Manchester are run

Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) wants to hear your views on their proposed bus franchising scheme for Greater Manchester. It doesn’t matter if you’re a regular bus passenger or rarely use the buses, everyone’s views are important and will inform a future decision on how buses are run. 

The proposed GMCA bus franchising scheme would bring bus services under Greater Manchester’s control similar to the way buses are run in London and some other major cities around the world. GMCA would set the routes, timetables, tickets and standards, while the bus operators would run the services.   

This would allow buses to work better with the rest of public transport – as part of Our Network – Greater Manchester’s vision for a joined-up transport system.  

If you need to respond in a different way, or require the consultation materials in a different format, please contact or call 0161 244 1100 to discuss your requirements.
