The Manchester Carriage Company was established on 1 March 1865 to provide horse-drawn bus services throughout Manchester and Salford, in England. The company was the result of a merger between the competing transport interests of local rivals John Greenwood, Robert and James Turner, and Alderman Ivie Mackie.[1] It was merged with the Manchester Suburban Tramways Company in 1880 to form the Manchester Carriage and Tramways Company.[2]
