About Transport for Greater Manchester

Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) is the local government body responsible for delivering Greater Manchester’s transport strategy and commitments.

More than 5.6 million journeys are made across Greater Manchester’s transport network each day.

They work closely with bus, tram and train operators to help improve the full journey experience. They own Greater Manchester’s bus stations, stops and shelters and invest in new, modern transport interchanges, and they also promote and invest in walking and cycling as safe, healthy and sustainable ways to travel.

Employees can make a request to reduce their working hours or change their working patterns under the company’s flexible working scheme. A number of working parents have made such requests and this facilitates employees managing their parental responsibilities.

In addition, the organisation does offer employees the option to work from home in situations where people are required to be at home for parental responsibilities.
