Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) is the local government body responsible for delivering Greater Manchester’s transport strategy and commitments.
Millions of trips are made across Greater Manchester’s transport network each day and it’s our responsibility to do everything we can to keep the city-region moving and growing.
Transport plays an integral part of everyone’s daily lives and TfGM is on a journey to make this experience even better.
At the heart of this journey is the need to deliver a London-style transport system which includes our buses and trams by 2024, and our commuter trains by 2030.
This journey will see a network delivered which is simple and easy to use, which supports seamless end to end journeys by foot, bike and public transport, with London-level fares, a daily cap and single ticket, no matter how many times or how the journey is made.
A journey to a system which is accessible to all, owned by, run for and accountable to Greater Manchester, with audio visual announcements on all services, real-time information, level access at stops, stations and interchanges, all under a single identifiable and respected brand.
A journey which connects our people, our neighbourhoods, our towns and cities and which helps people to travel sustainably to home, to school, to work and the many leisure and cultural destinations GM has to offer.
A journey to improve our health, our air quality and to help us achieve our commitment for GM to be net zero by 2038, one which offers an attractive alternative to the car for a fully electric system by the end of the decade.
There’s never been a more exciting time to join the TfGM family and help people and places to thrive by enabling seamless, safe, and sustainable journeys for all.
