Our annual travel to work survey will go LIVE on Monday 12th October and will capture travel to work data for the week of 5th – 9th October. This year’s survey will be much shorter than usual and will focus on the impact of Covid-19. Although the office buildings are closed and many of your employees are currently working from home, we are still interested in finding out employees travel behaviours – now (whether it’s working from home), pre-Covid and post-Covid. The results will help us and transport providers to plan services for the future.
Crazy Spanners will be providing cycle repairs every Tuesday and Thursday starting from 22nd September from the Mobility Cycle Hub at the Bradfield Centre, Cambridge Science Park from 10am -2pm. We will monitor demand for this service before extending the opening hours.
The 905 route was launched at the end of August 2020 in conjunction with the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority (CPCA) and provides direct links for students travelling to Cambridge Regional College (CRC) and commuters travelling to the Cambridge Science Park (CSP). The uptake of this service has been really positive so far.

Stagecoach have recently simplified the Busway network to an A and B core service and introduced new rural connections which feed into this. Both A and B services operate every 20 minutes and combine to form a 10 minute frequency along the main Cambridge-St Ives Busway corridor. The A service currently serves the Cambridge Science Park (CSP) on journeys towards Cambridge due to the closure of Histon Road. This diversion will be until early summer 2021.
Connecting services include the V1 between Ramsey and St Ives, V2 between Chatteris and St Ives, V3 between Somersham and St Ives, V4 between Boxworth and St Ives, V5 between Godmanchester and Hinchingbrooke, 904 between Peterborough and St Ives and the 915 between Royston and Cambridge. Customers travelling on these services which connect with the Busway, can buy a transfer ticket which allows them to transfer onto the Busway services without paying twice. More information on the routes and times can be found here.

The Ely area capacity enhancement (EACE) programme is a proposal to upgrade the railway to allow more trains to run through Ely. The aim is to improve connectivity and reliability for passenger services and meet the demand for more rail freight between the Port of Felixstowe, the West Midlands and the north to support sustainable, long-term economic growth.
First round of public consultation is now open until 1st November. Residents and businesses in and around Ely are being invited to learn more about the EACE programme and provide an opportunity for local communities to understand - the aspirations and the challenges that will have to be addressed to increase capacity; how the public will be consulted as options are progressed and current funding position.
