Transport

A shift towards more sustainable modes of transport is good news for our health, communities and the environment, both locally and globally. It is a vital step in reducing the emissions causing climate change. Manchester Friends of the Earth campaigns for cycling, walking, alternative fuels and quality public transport to be at the heart of policies on how we get around. We also believe that it is important to reduce the need to travel by, for example, promoting the use and development of local shops and services.

In autumn 2019 we’re backing the Better Buses for Greater Manchester campaign. Sign their petition here to tell Andy Burham to regulate the buses to bring better services to passengers.
