Greater Manchester Busway Transit

In the early 1990s, Alan Howes provided input to a study of the establishment of “Quality Bus Corridors” in Greater Manchester, including in particular forming partnerships with operators. His input also covered the securing of quality improvements in vehicles, customer care, reliability, information, terminals and bus stops etc. The client was GMPTE, and Alan acted as a sub-consultant to Mott MacDonald. This work prepared the way for later projects which are now seeing their first fruits as the Leigh-Salford-Manchester Busway, which has now been given the go-ahead.
