City Centre Transport Strategy

Closed 4 Nov 2020

Opened 23 Sep 2020


The City Centre Transport Strategy (CCTS) has been developed jointly by Manchester City Council, Salford City Council and Transport for Greater Manchester. 

The strategy’s central aim is for 90 per cent of all trips into the city centre to be made on foot, by cycle or using public transport before 2040 - helping to reduce air pollution and contribute to Manchester’s 2038 target for carbon neutrality. 

The consultation giving the public their chance to have their say on the plan, is being hosted on Manchester City Council's website and is open until Wednesday 4 November.
