The survey responses will be analysed, and a report published once this has been done.



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.


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.
