Choices for Better Journeys

Complete the survey and tell us your views on proposals for a future public transport network and ways to reduce congestion by Sunday 31 March 2019.

We need to significantly improve public transport across the area, alongside continued improvements to walking and cycling provision, to give people better choices for their journeys.

Feedback

We want your feedback on:

  • Ideas for the new public transport network for Greater Cambridge and beyond.
  • Ways to fund and deliver the public transport network.
  • Reducing congestion and improving air quality.

Tell us your views by completing the survey by Sunday 31 March.


Reducing congestion and improving air quality

Traffic has increased dramatically in Greater Cambridge, with almost a quarter of people’s commuting time now spent in traffic jams. Congestion is affecting people’s quality of life, the environment and productivity.

There is increasing concern about the impact of air pollution on our health in Greater Cambridge. We recently published a feasibility study to investigate whether introducing one or more clean air zones in Cambridge would help reduce air pollution.

A world class public transport system for Greater Cambridge

We want to create a world class public transport system that makes it easy to get into, out of, and around Cambridge.

The future network will offer quicker, more frequent and reliable services. Extended operating hours and a single ticketing system will provide more options and make it easier to get around. Villages will benefit from new services linking them into the network, speeding up journey times and offering simpler routes. More cycling and walking facilities will open up new routes, offering more options for shorter journeys.

The public transport network will offer better journeys and more choice for people across the area. See how people could use public transport in future.

Take our survey and tell us what you want from the new public transport network.

Options for Delivering a World Class Public Transport Network

Cambridge is a historic city with limited space available for people to move around. At the moment public transport often gets stuck in traffic, leading to slower, less reliable journeys. We need to reduce the number of cars on the road and create space for more sustainable transport. We also need to raise money to pay for a transformed public transport network that offers a more attractive journey than the car.

To do this, there are several ideas we could consider, including:

Before any of these options were introduced, it would be important that an improved public transport system was in place so people had alternative options. These ideas could be used independently or in combination, and all examples given are for illustrative purposes only.

Further information on the options is available in the Choices for Better Journeys brochure.

    A good public transport system works for everybody, getting people quickly from where they live to where they work, or to school or study, to the shops and leisure activities, and to healthcare services. It means people who do not drive can get about easily and provides a real alternative for motorists,

    A good public transport system works for everybody, getting people quickly from where they live to where they work, or to school or study, to the shops and leisure activities, and to healthcare services. It means people who do not drive can get about easily and provides a real alternative for motorists, reducing congestion and improving air quality.

    In 2017 the Greater Cambridge Partnership (GCP) ran 'Our Big Conversation', an engagement exercise where you told us that your biggest transport challenges were congestion and inadequate public transport. We need to tackle congestion, improve air quality, and ensure public transport, cycling and walking are more attractive for most journeys than travelling by car.

    We want your views on some of the ways we could make this happen.
