Have your say on the impact of Covid-19 on GMCA’s proposals for the future of your buses
Consultation on bus reforms will run until January 29, 2021
Buses account for 75 per cent of all public transport journeys in Greater Manchester both before and during the pandemic.
They continue to be a critical link to jobs and essential services, including for the one third of households in GM without a car.
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. More than 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 at GM Consult or call 0161 244 1100 before Friday 29 January 2021.
