UK guided busway provides rapid connections to bus travelers

Part of Transport for Greater Manchester’s (TfGM) bus priority investment package, a 4.5-mile bus-only guideway between Leigh, Tyldesley and Ellenbrook was put into service in April this year. Thanks to its unique concrete track, the busway provides super-smooth and rapid connections for passengers.


A fleet of 20 new, bespoke, state-of-the-art buses connect Leigh, Atherton and Manchester in as little as 50 minutes. Passengers travelling between Leigh and Manchester previously faced journeys timetabled at up to one hour and 20 minutes. The high-specification, low-emission hybrid buses have Wi-Fi and USB charging points, plush seating, audio and visual stop announcements and climate control. The seven purpose-built stops along the busway have real-time travel information display boards, CCTV, a public address system and covered cycle parking.
