Over three million passenger journeys have been made on services using the Leigh to Ellenbrook Guided Busway over the past year.

This equates to around 580,000 fewer* car journeys across the regional highway network each year, which is positive news in terms of improving air quality and reducing congestion.

Operated by First Manchester, the service launched in April 2016 and has clocked up 7.8 million journeys in its first three years.
