Faster service on park and ride
A faster service will be available to passengers on Cambridge's award-winning park and ride service from next month.

Two of the intermediary stops on the park and ride routes are being removed to improve the service.

Park and ride buses travelling on the Cowley to Babraham route will no longer stop at Arbury Crossroads from 2 September.

Buses on the Madingley to Newmarket route will no longer be stopping at Northampton Street.

Mac McGuire, lead member for highways and transport with Cambridgeshire County Council said: "Our customers tell us that they expect a fast service from our sites into the city centre.

"It is also vital that public transport is fast, reliable and of good quality if we are to encourage more people to use it. We believe that the removal of these two stops will lead to improved journey times, especially on the Cowley to Babraham Route.

"Encouraging more people onto Park and Ride is a key goal of Cambridgeshire County Council and as such we need to ensure our service is continually seeking to meet the demands of our customers."
