1.7 Million Pounds Grant to Improve Bus Services

People travelling by bus in Greater Manchester are going to be benefitted from a 1.7 million Pounds grant under Government strategies to enhance bus services.

Sadiq Khan, Transport Minister, has made an announcement for the additional funding under the new program named Kickstart, with the aim of making people get used to travelling by buses.

The Greater Manchester Integrated Transport Authority proposed for 12 formats, including a ferry bus from Salford Crescent train station to MediaCityUK.

Seven of the formats that include the £382,076 MediaCityUK link have been given green signal by the Department for Transport.

Commuters in Manchester, Bolton, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport Tameside and Wigan will also see improvements brought to a range of services which would include a few orbital courses as well.

The idea has been able to make Count Keith Whitmore, the Authority's Chairman, happy. He said that this is going to signify chief enhancements for orbital bus routes and is also going to make sure that there is appropriate public transportation connectivity at MediaCityUK. The Kickstart plan is positively going to make a huge difference for bus travelers in the best way.
