The Greater Manchester-wide charging Clean Air Zone is due to be introduced on 30 May 2022. Vehicles that do not meet emissions standards (non-compliant vehicles) will be charged to drive in the Clean Air Zone. There will be some discounts and exemptions.
You will need to pay a £60 daily charge to travel in the Zone if:
You own a bus or coach with nine or more passenger seats.
It has a Euro V or earlier diesel engine.
Owners of coaches and buses not used on a registered bus service will be able to apply for a temporary exemption from the daily Clean Air Zone charge until 1 June 2023.
We want to support affected vehicle owners in Greater Manchester to upgrade to cleaner, compliant vehicles and not have to pay a charge. Answer a few questions to see if your vehicle is included in the Zone and eligible for an exemption, and/or funding.Vehicle and Financial Support checker
You can apply for financial support to either retrofit or replace your non-compliant coach or bus. Applications are limited to a maximum of five vehicles per applicant, for a mix of vehicle types.
You may not be eligible for support to upgrade your vehicle from the Greater Manchester Financial Support Scheme. If you are eligible, this does not guarantee a funding award. The available government funding will be targeted to support vehicle owners who need it the most to clean up the most polluting eligible vehicles.
