Greater Manchester bus network back under public control

Foundation for Integrated Transport

Road safety

The region’s buses will be run in a London-style system where operators bid to run services on a franchise basis.

Pascale Robinson, from public ownership campaign group We Own It who ran the Better Buses for Greater Manchester campaign, said the move would be “absolutely game-changing” for the region’s public transport.

Bringing our buses into public control will transform our bus network so that it can work for passengers, rather than for private profit.
