Greater Manchester Transport Strategy 2040

Our long-term plan to create a city-region where people have a better quality of life with improved health, a greener environment and a stronger economy. We want 50% of all journeys in Greater Manchester by 2040 to be by walking, cycling or public transport. That’s a million more sustainable journeys every day.
