Smart Transport

MaaS and active travel are at the heart of TfGM's 20-year strategy

Greater Manchester has set out some ambitious goals for its transport strategy over the coming 20 years that put mobility as a service (MaaS) and active travel at the heart of its thinking.

Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) wants half of all journeys across its 10 district boroughs to be made by walking, cycling and public transport by 2040 with no net increase in motor vehicle traffic – this is what it calls ‘The Right Mix’.

The city is aiming to be net zero carbon by 2038 which will also require Greater Manchester to be at the forefront of electric vehicle (EV) technology.
