Transport plan and long term strategy

The Local Transport Plan is a statutory document prepared by Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM), Greater Manchester's ten local councils and our key partners and stakeholders. Our current local plan provides a long-term framework to improve transport across the city region, creating a cleaner, greener, more prosperous Greater Manchester, through better connections and simpler travel. This sits alongside a five-year delivery plan.

The Greater Manchester Transport Strategy 2040 - developed by TfGM on behalf of the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) and Greater Manchester Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) - focuses on creating an integrated, sustainable and well co-ordinated transport system.

Considering all types of travel, from short local trips to Greater Manchester's global connectivity, the Strategy shapes the future of transport as part of a radical, and ambitious, new approach to planning in support of the region's long-term needs and aspirations.
