About 4 inches of snow fell in St Ives late evening and during the night.
I caught the 09.40 Service B from St Ives Bus Station to Cambridge. Here is a picture showing a Whippet bus arriving at the bus station presumably to start the journey to Cambridge.
The service B left on time, and here is a view approaching St Ives Park & Ride showing the Whippet bus turning back.
Later, I received an 'adverse weather update' email from Stagecoach which said that:
Stagecoach route B is operating but may be subject to delay due to the adverse weather conditions.
Whippets route C is not operating today (Sunday 5th February 2012).
And what arrangements are in place to get the track cleared early in the morning before the buses start to run?
Update - The Hunts Post (8 February, page 3) carried a brief article about the effect of snow on the busway. Whippet abandoned their service after the first bus along the track experienced problems with compacted snow, and slipping. Stagecoach decide to keep going for the sake of their customers.
