Doing buses differently: The impact of Covid-19 on our proposals for the future of your buses

Closes 29 Jan 2021

Opened 2 Dec 2020


Between October 2019 and January 2020, Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) held a consultation on a proposed franchising scheme for the city-region’s buses. Over 8,500 people gave their views.

In June, GMCA received the results of the consultation but decided, before a final decision could be made, that the impact of Covid-19 on the bus market and the proposed franchising scheme should be considered.

Now, GMCA is asking for your views on its proposals in light of the findings of the Covid-19 impact report, which looked at potential future travel demand in Greater Manchester and what it could mean for GMCA’s proposals to change how buses are run.

Have your say on the future of your buses
