Plan a journey

Online services to help you plan a journey

Welcome to our online travel directory. If you’ve got to plan a journey in Greater Manchester, we want to make sure you have access to the most accurate information and products available with a wide range to choose from.

Remember - the current instruction from government is that you should not use public transport unless you have no alternative – if you need to travel, walk or cycle where possible. Due to social distancing there will be limited space on transport services and you may have to wait - please plan ahead, avoid the peaks and be patient when travelling.

If you have any questions or need any help, please give our Customer Contact Centre a call on 0161 244 1000. We are open 7am to 8pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 8pm Saturday and Sunday.
