O Where are our Buses?

On a cold Thursday lunchtime – Manchester Friends of the Earth volunteers joined in with the Better Buses for Greater Manchester Festive celebration at Piccadilly Bus Station to encourage people to support the GM Buses consultation.

Passers-bys were regaled with some lovely (slightly amended) Festive carols and encouraged to support the GM Bus Consultation. This consultation is our biggest chance to tell the Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham loud and clear: we want and need better, publicly controlled buses.

If you would like Greater Manchester to have better, publicly controlled buses – the Better Buses for Greater Manchester campaign have created an easy-to-use email response that should only take 2 – 3 minutes to complete. The consultation runs until 8th January 2020… but best not to delay !

Please fill out the Better Buses for GM consultation response now, with your personal stories and thoughts too, to show your support for better buses.

If we can win in Greater Manchester, it will set a precedent for the rest of the UK to follow. 

If you would like to read the Consultation document (160 pages) or the Technical Assessment (660 pages) these are available on the Consultation website. Along with the short survey form (12 pages)
