1 of 3

Our Greater Manchester Moving partners, Transport for Greater Manchester have some excellent resources and information to get you walking more, even if it’s just the first and last mile of your journey.

The Bee Network, unveiled in 2018 by Cycling and Walking Commissioner Chris Boardman, is a plan to revolutionise travel across the city-region, making active travel the number one choice for travelling to work, to school and to the shops.
