Millionth passenger on busway

This week's Huntingdon & St Ives News & Crier (19 January, page 3) reports on the millionth passenger on the busway - Christine Chandler from Colne who was travelling from St Ives Park & Ride to Addenbrooke's with her father.

Elsewhere in the same issue (pages 12-13) Andy Campbell of Stagecoach reports that usage of the route has more than doubled (50,000 a week) compared with the old 15, 45 and 55 routes pre-busway (24,000 a week). Many of these journeys are being made by new bus users, people who would otherwise have driven to Cambridge via the A14. Cllr Steve Criswell says the county council is now wanting to increase the park & ride capacity, and hopes that the busway will eventually attract 3.5 million passengers per year.
