This is a list of Stagecoach Manchester bus routes. Stagecoach Manchester is a major operator of bus services in Greater Manchester. It is part of the Stagecoach Group, and is its largest bus subsidiary in the UK. Stagecoach was formerly known as GM Buses South until 1996, the northern part of which is now known as First Greater Manchester. This was following privatisation of buses in 1986, when GM Buses was split into two.

Most services are operated on a daily basis, with differing frequencies in the early mornings, late afternoons, evenings and weekends. Some services frequency has been separated into peak and non-peak time on this page. Peak time is often considered to be on weekday mornings and evenings when bus services are at their busiest. Furthermore, some bus routes are jointly operated with other companies.
