Greater Cambridge Partnership to decide on city’s transport improvement plans

The Greater Cambridge Partnership is to decide on what public transport improvements are to be implemented in Cambridge and how they are to be funded.

A meeting today (30th Sep) will see see the Greater Cambridge Partnership’s Executive Board decide on plans including a future bus network that will see a bus every 10 minutes in Cambridge between 5am and midnight in larger towns and villages as well as a new hourly service in rural areas.

More active travel schemes and lower bus fares are also among the proposals according to the Cambridge Independent.

The Greater Cambridge Partnership’s Public Transport Improvements and City Access Strategy also suggests modal filters, a clean air zone, measures to reduce on and off-street parking, higher parking fees, and a pollution or congestion charge all on the table.

The executive board will also be asked to support the recommendations to make permanent six experimental road closures in Cambridge which were implemented during the pandemic.
