STAGECOACH ANNOUNCES CHANGES TO CAMBRIDGE CITI BUS NETWORK

 

  • Changes to Cambridge Citi network effective from Sunday 18th February
  • Citi 1, 2 & 3 will all see new timetables introduced
  • Citi 2 to provide new daytime link to Coldham’s Lane Sainsbury’s
  • There are also changes to routes 11/12 from the same date
  • Routes Citi 3 and 17 will also change on the 4th March 2018

From 18th February 2018 Stagecoach East will be making a number of changes to its Cambridge Citi bus services to improve reliability and connectivity over a core part of its network.

Citi 1/3 will see a change to the frequency at Fulbourn during the day time (Monday to Saturday) with buses operating every 30 minutes. Evening and Sunday buses will not change.

Citi 2 will continue to operate every 10 minutes Monday to Saturday daytimes between Cambridge North Rail Station and Mill Road. Buses will then continue every 20 minutes to Addenbrooke’s, and every 20 minutes to Coldham’s Lane Sainsbury’s providing a new link to the store.

There will also be changes to Saturday morning frequencies on Citi 1, 2 & 3 with buses running up to every 20 minutes before 0900.

From the same date there will also be changes to routes 11 & 12 between Cambridge, Bury St Edmund’s & Ely. Buses on route 11 will only operate between Bury St Edmund’s and Newmarket off peak. There will be a minor alteration to the 12 timetable which will enable customers to change buses at Newmarket Bus Station for onward travel to Cambridge/Ely.

Stagecoach East will be making further changes from Sunday 4th March 2018. From this date service 17 will no longer operate. Journeys on Citi 3 will be extended from the Fulbourn Superstore to replace journeys on route 17 between Cherry Hinton and Stetchworth.

These changes are being made due to declining passenger numbers and the ever increasing congestion within Cambridge, which hampers the progress of the buses.

New timetables are available to view online and will be available in print shortly. Customers can also download the free Stagecoach app – available in the App and Play stores – or use the website journey planner to plan their journeys. New timetable information will be available via the app or journey planner from week commencing 29th January 2018.
