Local Bus Services

The County Council has advised that bus services across Cambridgeshire will be discussed at their Economy and Environment Committee meeting this week (7th February). Whilst the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority’s bus review continues and options are worked on, both authorities consider that it is important that existing bus services are protected. So, from April, the County Council are proposing that all currently funded bus services should continue. The Combined Authority has also asked the County Council to continue providing bus service policy and delivery on its behalf for one more year while opportunities for radical reform of the network are explored.
