Most recently, Nick led development of the city region’s ambitious Bus Strategy, which set out how Greater Manchester intends to improve and grow its bus system using the powers afforded by bus franchising.

During his eight years of policy work for Greater Manchester, Nick has also been involved in the development of a refreshed active travel mission, the Greater Manchester Good Employment Charter and is currently working with colleagues to develop the city region’s next Local Transport Plan.
