Greater Manchester traffic counters and sensors

The website is primarily aimed at people working in urban related disciplines (eg researchers, planners), but is freely available for the public to use.

Interactive bus route map for Greater Manchester

A tool that has been created to primarily assist relevant local organisations to quickly understand the detail of the local public transport network for planning purposes. It is also freely available for the general public to use, but should not be used for obtaining passenger information, because it was not built with this purpose in mind. The tool displays four types of information: bus service routes and bus stations and stops; Local Link Areas and associated destinations; rail and Metrolink lines and stations; population data with socio-demographic classifications, journey times to key centres and accessibility levels.

GM Open Data Infrastructure Map

The Greater Manchester Open Data Infrastructure Map (GMODIN) makes use of existing local, regional and national datasets on a variety of topics; from open public sector and environmental assets to energy utility networks.

Real time data feeds

We have a number of real time open data feeds providing live data from across Greater Manchester’s transport network. This tools have been created with developers in mind. TfGM hopes that by making more data available from across the region’s transport network that this will inspire the development of high quality applications that create better informed travellers and stimulate smarter choices.

Bus and tram performance reports

For bus services, you can see a seven-day snapshot of how services are performing on punctuality (whether they are running to advertised times).

For tram, we publish punctuality and reliability performance information every quarter for the entire network, as well as a more detailed breakdown for each line.
