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

Closed 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.
