With a population of 2.8 million, Greater Manchester encompasses one of the largest metropolitan areas in the United Kingdom. It is a world-class business and investment location with all the benefits and attractions of a rapidly expanding European metropolis. Manchester’s thriving arts and music scenes and its historical role at the heart of the transport and industrial revolutions make it an increasingly popular destination for tourists and travellers to the UK.
Transport for Greater Manchester works with partners to deliver a sustained and strategic programme of investment in cycling from both the public and private sectors. Within a generation, we are aiming to make cycling a mainstream, every day and aspirational form of transport for all, regardless of age, ability or background.
