Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA)

Services delivered by GMCA

Greater Manchester Combined Authority helps deliver jobs, health, housing and public transport services.


The mayor has a budget to help businesses across the region grow and develop. This will complement the regeneration work we do. The key aim is to create 50,000 new jobs across the region.


£6 billion of health spending was transferred to GMCA in April 2016. The key aim is to bring the 37 health providers in the north west together to ensure decisions on health spending are made locally, rather than in London.


The mayor will take responsibility for the housing budget across the region. The key aim is to build 15,000 new homes across Greater Manchester.

Public transport 

There will be more control over bus routes, bus fares and bus services. The mayor has more control over local rail services with the potential for new local stations across the city-region. The key aim is to ensure more regulation of local transport services ensuring a more accountable system with more capacity and better value for money for passengers.
