GTTC very pleased to attend successful launch for new campaign to increase and support walking and cycling to address universally accepted objectives.
Not sure how the idea of seeking to allow bikes on Metrolink on a trial basis is something which might be regarded as an objective for all of Greater Manchester. Perhaps try for something a bit more ambitious….. eg how about removing seats from half of every other carriage on all GM trains as well as trams? These could be replaced by folding down seats and more standing space as well as being accessible for more buggies, prams, wheelchairs and thereby increase attractiveness of trying to travel by public transport for a wider range of users – people not just of our tribe! It would also allow for more capacity with more standing room at peak times.
At GTTC while mainly enjoying substantial trips to get to the coast we also
- help businesses to promote more cycling to work;
- offer corporate cycle based entertainment; and
- seek to encourage a wider cycling and general activity movement with for example ‘0-50k in 49 days’
We look forward to supporting #walkbikegm under whatever name is eventually chosen for this great initiative.
