Greater Manchester is growing. That means more people want to live and work here and that more journeys are being made.
To keep Greater Manchester moving we need to ensure we have a truly integrated public transport system, so that getting around our city-region is easy, accessible and affordable. We also need excellent walking and cycling links in our local neighbourhoods so that we can walk and cycle easily and safely for shorter journeys.
That means having the right connections to the right places, simple ticketing that works across different modes of transport and the necessary powers to ensure our transport network works together for the benefit of Greater Manchester’s people and businesses.
Our Network sets out everything we want to achieve over the next ten years to improve our public transport and walking and cycling networks.

It includes projects we are already delivering, including the Trafford Park Line, contactless payment on Metrolink, £160m investment in walking and cycling infrastructure, and Park and Ride improvements, alongside projects we want to deliver if we secure the funding from government, such as further extensions to Metrolink and improvements to our bus network.
Our Network is also a call to government for the political power and local accountability for Greater Manchester so that we can make the decisions needed to deliver the best sustainable transport network possible for the people and businesses of the city-region.
Our Network has been designed to align with TfGM’s long-term 2040 Transport Strategy, highlighting the work that we aim to deliver in the next decade, and beyond, to make travelling in Greater Manchester easier for everyone.
