Greater Manchester has much to be proud of in transport terms; we had the first purpose built canal in 1761, the first bus service in the UK in 1824, the world’s first public passenger carrying railway in 1830 and one of the first extensive tramway networks in Britain.

Based at their Grade II listed building alongside our own bus depot on Boyle Street, the Museum of Transport showcases a wide range of vehicles, memorabilia and artefacts - and many of the vehicles are able to run on public roads, and still do! The museum's popular free shuttle services run on select weekends and event dates.

Get there on the 135 to Cheetham Hill road, just a short walk from the museum.
