Last chance to take part: Manchester's travel consultation

29 Nov 2022

After successfully launching an active travel strategy for the city centre, Manchester City Council wants to learn how people feel about Active Travel across Manchester

A consultation has been launched that will help shape the future of Active Travel and put the feelings of residents at its core. It is essential that the right strategy is put in place which represents the wishes of residents across Manchester.

The Council knows through previous engagement that barriers do exist which prevent people from engaging in Active Travel. This can range from concerns over safety, access to a cycle, or the availability of things like seating and signage, and we know this affects different groups in a variety of ways.

As part of this consultation the Council is aiming to learn: 

  • What routes or areas in Manchester should be prioritised for improvement (with the aim of making it easier to use active travel).
  • What challenges people face when walking, wheeling or cycling, or what barriers are in place that would prevent a person engaging in active travel.
  • What opportunities the Council could pursue to improve people’s access to active travel. 

You can share your views through the Council's online consultation until Friday, 2 December.
