Have your say on how buses are run!

Buses are vital for Greater Manchester. They’re used for three-out-of-four public transport journeys and thousands of people depend on them to get to work, the shops or services like our local GP.

Buses also help reduce the number of cars on the roads, this means less congestion and less pollution.

But bus use is falling.

Hate Crime

Greater Manchester is a place where everyone should feel safe to be themselves. No one should face violence, abuse or hatred just because of who they are, who they love, where they’re from, what they look like or what they believe. Hate incidents and hate crime will not be tolerated in Greater Manchester. 

There is a lot of great work taking place to tackle hate crime in each area of Greater Manchester but we think we can be more effective if we work together. So, we are creating the Greater Manchester Hate Crime Plan to help prevent and tackle hate crime.
