Transport for Greater Manchester – the new name for GMPTEApril 29, 2011
As of this month the Greater Manchester Passenger Transport Executive has a new name – Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) – and takes on some additional responsibilities.
TfGM retains GMPTE’s control over bus and rail subsidy and service planning, ownership of the Metrolink, but takes on strategic transport planning to include the road network too. We understand one of the objectives is to make the organisation into more of a co-ordinated transport planning hub along the lines of London’s generally admired TfL (Transport for London).
There are more details about the changes on this post from Inside the M60.
