TFGM green yellow school bus

Parents issued school bus reminder

We are urging parents and guardians to take action and book places for their children on yellow school bus services for the next academic year.

Due to high levels of demand applications received before 30 June are more likely to be allocated a place. From this date onwards if a bus is fully allocated no further places will be made available.

Applications for the Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) Yellow School Bus services, which exceeded 6,500 last year, can be completed online from Saturday 1 June. Anyone without internet access can call 0161 244 1000 for more information.

Parents can choose their preferred option from the 67 dedicated yellow school bus routes

Work starts on the first Bee Network Project: Wigan's Muddy Mile

Work has begun to deliver the first scheme as part of Greater Manchester’s Bee Network - a plan for the UK’s largest cycling and walking network launched in 2018 by Cycling and Walking Commissioner Chris Boardman.

Funded jointly by the Mayor’s Cycling and Walking Challenge Fund, The Bridgewater Canal Company and Wigan Council, the £212,000 project will deliver the much-needed one mile stretch of surface improvements, as well as better access and signage, plugging a vital gap in the Bridgewater Way.

The works will allow people to cycle on the canal path all the way from Wigan Pier, through Leigh and across the Salford boundary to Monton and Patricroft.
