The consultation, which launched in November, has reached its mid-way point but there is still plenty of time for people to have their say on the proposals.
Rural Travel Hubs are small, flexible transport interchanges that would enable people to switch from using cars to using more sustainable forms of transport such as buses, cycling, or walking.
This would benefit those travelling into Cambridge and the surrounding villages by helping to reduce traffic congestion and improving air quality.
The consultation includes two potential options for the design of the site, which could include features such as car parking, travel information in real time, and cycle lockers.
Cllr Ian Bates, GCP’s transport portfolio holder, said: “Rural Travel Hubs will make it easier for people in Oakington and rural areas to access public transport to give them a real alternative to the car to help reduce congestion and improve air quality.
“The proposals for a Rural Travel Hub at Oakington have been developed following engagement with the local community in the summer.
“It’s really important that people tell us what they think of the proposals, what they like about them or what they don’t like, so that our Executive Board can make an informed decision about next steps in the spring of 2019.”
The consultation closes on Monday 7 January 2019.
