The Cambridgeshire Guided Busway linking St Ives, Cambridge and Trumpington opened on 7 August 2011. There have been successes - millions of passengers on the buses, and thousands of cyclists, walkers and horse-riders on the 'access track'. But there have also been problems - flooding of the cycle track, punctuality spring to mind, accidents and bumpy track. The blog is for anyone who wants to discuss their experiences of using the guided busway.
Ignore this post - the planned works are, well, no longer planned! CANCELLED, indeed.
It's hard to keep up!
The Busway B service is affected by roadworks in Orchard Park on 28 and 29 April. Buses will not serve Orchard Park on these dates. Would-be passengers can use the Cambridge Road stops instead (the regular "diversion" stops) - or, at the other end of Orchard Park catch a D from their nearest stop. A reminder that, for the time being, route B is extended to the Biomedical Campus and Trumpington Park & Ride. And, for those who live near to Histon Road, a further reminder that the B is currently serving all stops along Histon Road. Stick your hand out, or press the bell, as appropriate. You don't have to wait for a Citi 8.
The complete temporary Busway timetable can be found here.
Further significant shrinkage of Stagecoach's Busway services will take place on Sunday 5 April.
In addition to timetable changes, there are route changes. And it's worth noting, in particular, that Pine Hills, Brampton and Buckden will no longer be served (although the 66 provides an alternative service for the last two of these).
The list of changes is too extensive to document here. Instead, if you need to travel, there is a full explanation on the Stagecoach website.
