Description

We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming for a piece of breaking news.

Greater Manchester mayor Andy Burnham has announced that the city region will bring its bus network back under public control.  Finally Manchester will have the connected fair transport service it deserves! 

It’s a huge win for Manchester’s communities and commuters, but most of all, it’s a victory for Better Buses GM who have campaigned tirelessly for years to reform the bus network.

On this bonus episode we welcome back Better Buses Greater Manchester campaigner Pascale Robinson (@PascaleRobinson). We talk through this hard fought victory, what happens next and take a brief moment to celebrate.

Here's our orginal interview with Pascale last summer
