Rural Travel Hubs enable residents in South Cambridgeshire to connect to local public transport and/or cycling and walking opportunities.

By connecting people and promoting greener, cleaner travel, we want to nurture strong and vibrant communities across Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire.

Rural Travel Hubs could include:

  • close proximity to a railway station and bus route
  • car parking
  • secure and covered cycle parking
  • bus shelters with real-time bus information
  • space for bus passengers to change buses

We will be working with the community in summer/autumn 2017 to find out their needs and requirements for Rural Travel Hubs.

The outcome of a South Cambridgeshire Parish Council poll on potential locations for 'rural travel hubs' has been published

Rural Travel Hubs would support the Transport Strategy for Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire (2014) which has the benefits of:

  • enhancing accessibility to, from and within Cambridge and South Cambridgeshire
  • ensuring good transport links between new and existing communities, and the jobs and services people wish to access
  • prioritising sustainable alternatives to the car and reducing the impacts of congestion on sustainable modes of transport
  • encouraging healthy and active travel, supporting improved wellbeing

In summer 2016, all Parish Councils in South Cambridgeshire were contacted for initial feedback on Rural Travel Hubs.

In March 2017, the Greater Cambridge City Deal Executive Board agreed to progress a feasibility study of Rural Travel Hubs in South Cambridgeshire.

The project will work with communities in South Cambridgeshire this summer and autumn to establish the best locations for Rural Travel Hubs and the benefits they will bring.
