We thought it may be useful to you to know about Transport for Greater Manchester’s (TfGM) Route
Explorer; which is now live on www.tfgm.com/route-explorer. This asks people where they want to go and then shows them all the direct
bus services that they can catch, when they leave, where the nearest
bus stops are and how they can link up with trams and trains.
Route Explorer, which works on smartphones, tablets and PCs, is TfGM’s latest digital product designed to make life easier for anyone who wants to make a journey in Greater Manchester.
Once Route Explorer has found the start and end points of a direct journey, it links to an online bus timetable library, sending passengers to the timetable they need. The map shows the route and all the stops along the way, as well as nearby tram and rail stations.
Although it currently only searches for direct bus services, once you’ve got into the tool, you’ll find there are many ways to use Route Explorer to explore the bus network and identify opportunities to connect between other bus, tram and rail services.
