Let’s Get Talking

Businesses can play a key role in utilising these networks and encouraging better business travel.

Greater Manchester remains committed to investing in sustainable travel networks and implementing initiatives across the North to reduce travel-related emissions. Whilst businesses are eager to join the movement and do what they can to improve the use of sustainable travel alternatives, they often struggle to know what resources are available and how they can get involved.
