Great to visit Bolton Interchange today and see first hand the new buses that will be sweeping Greater Manchester soon

Delighted that under @AndyBurnhamGM's stewardship GM is finally getting an integrated transport system in the form of the #BeeNetwork
It was great to chat to staff from @OfficialTfGM on the ground (Michael, Donna, and Jade) about the ambitious plans

They're working to deliver an integrated bus and tram transport system by 2024 and to include trains by 2030, feeding into a wider net zero goal by 2038
For more information take a read of this, here is an information piece from today's event I snapped (photography is not my forte so apologies!)

This clearly outlines Greater Manchester's plan to create an affordable alternative and address the age old idea that "car is king."
I've written to the Mayor of Manchester (see below) to outline my views on the plans and some of my concerns regarding the cost of fares and staffing of stations

We need to do all we can make public transport the most attractive option for people
Finally, @OfficialTfGM are running a survey to help the public to feed in what the Bee Network's final destination come the late 2020s should look like

It is crucial that as many people in Greater Manchester can fill this in…
