Welcome to First Bus Greater Manchester

Welcome to First Bus Greater Manchester. With nearly 150 bus services along Manchester bus routes, operating around our bustling towns and cities, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to where to stop. We have a range of museums, from football to science, and the area is well-known as a shopper’s paradise. So whether you’re here for fun or work, you’ll always find more with easier local travel.

If you’re coming in from further north west, why not leave the car at the Park and Ride, and take the bus to either Manchester or Salford, so you don’t have to deal with city centre traffic and be faced with a hefty parking fee. Greater Manchester is also filled with universities, and we have plenty of bus routes to help you get there without the fuss. You can take time to read up on your favourite subjects, use our free Wi-Fi to catch up with friends online or just chill out after a long day of lectures. Wherever you’re going, we’re here to help.

Helping you get around Greater Manchester as easily as possible

From online tickets to timetables and route maps, we have a vast amount of resources to help you get around as easily as possible. First Bus operate 150 bus services running regularly throughout Greater Manchester, meaning there is always a bus ready to take you where you need to go. You can find information regarding our buses including timetables, prices and use our journey planner on the First Bus App to ensure a smooth ride.
