What next for public transport between Cambourne and Cambridge?

28 February 2020

On Friday 6th March a report to the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority Transport Committee will outline the next steps of the proposals for public transport between Cambourne and Cambridge. It will seek to make two recommendations.  Firstly, to get an agreement to set out a vision for the Cambridgeshire Autonomous Metro as a whole, against which the Cambourne to Cambridge scheme’s contribution to the overall CAM metro can be evaluated; and secondly, to recommend immediate public transport improvements between Cambourne and key employment sites in Cambridge which can be put in place by the end of this calendar year.The Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority wrote to the Greater Cambridge Partnership on Monday 17th February in his capacity as Chairman of the Local Transport Authority making it clear that he does not support the GCP’s proposals for public transport between Cambourne and Cambridge in their current form.The Combined Authority has now taken direct responsibility for the delivery of the public transport solutions for Cambridge to Cambourne.  It clear that the interaction between the proposed Cambourne to Cambridge scheme and East West Rail needs to be fully understood to ensure that the two schemes will genuinely complement each other.
