17 out of 18 bus services saved!
On this very rainy day we have some exciting news to share to cheer us all up...
Earlier this week, the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority had a meeting to discuss possible solutions to the Stagecoach route cancellations.
Today we can share the good news that 17 of the 18 services due to be cut, along with 5 services due to be reduced, have all received quotes from new operators looking to cover these services. A list of these routes can be found by clicking here.
From Monday 24th October, the names of the new bus operators and their timetables will be made public and able to view on the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority website.
We do not currently have any information about the process and procedures for Student Bus Passes, but we will share further information with you as soon as we can. Stagecoach East are offering refunds on bus passes if your route is no longer served by them. To request a refund please contact the Stagecoach customer service team.
Please find below a letter shared by the Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council with further information.
