Residents can now have their say on plans to improve bus services, a new park and ride site and better cycling and walking facilities to the west of Cambridge.
The public consultation on the Cambourne to Cambridge better bus journeys scheme opened today (Monday 13 November). It is open for 10 weeks.
The scheme, put forward by the Greater Cambridge Partnership, aims to provide fast, reliable and sustainable transport links between existing and new homes and places of employment. It will also help reduce congestion on the A428 and A1303.
With some 8,800 new homes planned in communities along these roads by 2031 - and a further 3,700 at St Neots - demand for commuting trips to the city are expected to grow by up to 30 percent.
The Cambourne to Cambridge scheme plans to alleviate this by providing alternative and reliable options to driving.
The consultation will focus on the first phase of the scheme, a bus route between a new Park and Ride to the east of Cambourne, to the city.
The partnership is also hosting 18 public events across the area before Christmas, with GCP officers hitting the road in a double-decker bus to discuss the options in more detail with people in the community.
A list of the events, which kick off on Monday 20 November at Madingley Park and Ride at 7.30am, is available on the events page.
