Manchester : Responsible authorities
2 Piccadilly Place,
Contact: Mr Simon Warburton, Transport Strategy Director at TfGM
Transport for Greater Manchester is the delivery arm for the elected body, responsible for investing your money in improving transport services and facilities, supporting the largest regional economy outside London. We are also responsible for providing the analysis that helps inform Greater Manchester’s transport strategy and planning for a more sustainable future.
Our Vision is to drive the growth of a healthy and sustainable Greater Manchester through the delivery of a reliable, integrated transport network.”
It is our job to promote the choices you have to make your journey, from public transport to walking to cycling. We provide the information - and the facilities - needed so that citizens can make the decisions that best suit them.
We own Metrolink and are delivering a £1.4 billion expansion and improvement programme, providing new connections and new opportunities for Greater Manchester communities.
We pay for buses in areas where no commercial services are provided and help people such as the young and old travel at reduced fares. We also own Greater Manchester’s bus stations, shelters and stops.
We are the voice of the passenger in securing rail services that match local travel needs.
On the roads, we look after the day to day management of traffic signals on Greater Manchester’s major highways, helping people and goods get to where they need to go.
