Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) has launched a new £800,000 funding package and interactive web portal to help businesses and employers embed sustainable travel behaviours, head-off a car-led recovery and build back better from the pandemic.
A new scheme that allows people to borrow a bike for free – just like a book - has been launched in Greater Manchester, offering communities the chance to kick-start their own sustainable bike library.
Work has started on a new temporary Park and Ride facility in Radcliffe as part of plans to increase the number of parking spaces at both the Radcliffe and Whitefield Metrolink stops, with the intention of opening up the network to more people.
Metrolink passengers are set for a service boost this summer, with the introduction of more frequent off-peak trams to cope with increasing demand.
Work to maintain and improve the region’s roads and public transport networks is taking place over the summer – and residents, workers and visitors are being encouraged to plan their journey in advance.

Tram times, tickets and travel information
Due to coronavirus-related staff absences, and to ensure Metrolink can provide a more reliable and consistent service for customers, a temporary reduced timetable will be in place from Friday (6 August).
The Eccles Metrolink line will remain closed beyond the weekend to allow for the completion of safety-critical engineering works.
Following repairs throughout the day, the Metrolink operator, KeolisAmey Metrolink (KAM), is planning to operate a normal weekday timetable tomorrow, Tuesday 27 July, subject to driver availability.
