On behalf of everyone at Travel Plan Plus and Travel for Cambridgeshire, we would like to wish you and your family a very happy and safe festive season!
Travel Plan Plus (TP+) have been able to negotiate special rates with Panther Taxis for the Cambridge Science Park (CSP) and Cambridge Business Park (CBP) employees for your airport travels. Panther Taxis are pleased to offer their Executive car service for airport travel to TP+ members and they would be happy to honour their standard rate for any executive bookings from 11th December 2017 to 31st March 2018. Their executive fleet consists of Mercedes E Class, Audi's and BMW's.
The prices are based on Cambridge City centre collections (refer here for the Cambridge Ward - www.cambridge.gov.uk/ward-map ). As both parks are outside the Cambridge City boundary and in the South Cambridgeshire District, therefore there is an additional saving as Panther Taxi have waived the additional surcharge in the first instance. Prices and savings from CSP or CBP to London airports ranges from £47.20 to Stanstead with a savings of £6.70 whilst it would cost £122.10 to Gatwick with a savings of £11.30.
All bookings should be emailed to their Corporate Booking Team quoting "Travel Plan Plus" in the subject line in order to benefit from this offer. If you would like more information, please contact email@example.com

The 2017 Annual Travel to Work Survey ran from Sunday 7th October to Friday 13th October, collecting data on employees commuting methods over a one week period. This year 73 organisations within the Science Park and Business Park took part in the survey, resulting in 2,634 valid responses! The data is being analysed and the overall report for the Travel Plan Plus (TP+) area will be published on our website by the end of January.
Also Congratulations to Jonathan Woof at Worldpay, Leonard Nonde at Qualcomm and Simon Kitchen at Owlstone who won the TP+ Annual Survey prize draw of £50 John Lewis vouchers (photos left to right). Once again thank you to each and every one of you who took 2 minutes of your valuable time to complete the survey.
Greater Anglia is giving passengers a virtual tour of its new trains, which are due in service from 2019. The company is investing £1.4bn in an entire new fleet with more than 1,000 carriages. The new trains will all be fitted with fast free wifi, air conditioning, and plug and USB sockets.
In the meantime people are invited to stations across the network to step on board one of the new trains via a virtual reality headset. They will even be able to sit down in one of the new seats and it will feel like they are on board a brand new train. Through the headset, people will be able to walk onto a station platform where three of the new trains will be parked – a Bombardier and two Stadlers. The Bombardier will replace commuter trains which run to Liverpool Street from Essex, Hertfordshire, Cambridge and Ipswich. The Stadlers will be replace trains on the Intercity, Stansted Express and rural lines. Once “on board” people will be able to look around them to see the new seats, carpet, finishings, plug points, large picture windows and even visit the toilet.
