Greater Manchester Transport Committee

Purpose of committee

The Greater Manchester Transport Committee (GMTC) is a joint committee made-up of the principal transport decision-making bodies – the ten GM Councils, the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) and the Mayor of Greater Manchester.


It is responsible for driving the delivery of ‘Our Network’ - the city region’s vision for an integrated, efficient and reliable transport system.


Members of the GMTC represent residents and businesses across Greater Manchester and have a unique oversight across all aspects of Greater Manchester’s transport network. It will oversee the performance of the transport system and hold rail, tram, and bus operators, TfGM, and highways authorities to account. This effectively allows the Committee to act in an advisory capacity to the Mayor and the GMCA, through the Mayor’s Transport Board.
