National lockdown restrictions are in place across England. Until 2 December, you should only travel for work, education or other permitted reasons. From 2 December England will be returning to a 3 Tier System. Find out more about local restrictions.

A tiered system of protection levels is in operation across Scotland. So, if you need to travel, make sure you're up-to-date with what's happening in your area by checking the local government guidance.

We've put in place measures to allow you to travel safely including limiting available seats on buses and enhanced cleaning. Unless you’re exempt, you must wear a face covering throughout your journey. Please avoid busy times, use contactless payment where you can, keep your distance and take your litter with you.

  • The route will initially operate within the Science Park on a hail and ride basis until permanent stops can be located. Those wishing to board must clearly indicate this to the driver in a safe place and those wanting to leave the bus must ring the bell in plenty of time. 
  • The 905 runs every 30 minutes Monday-Sunday. Cambridge Regional College and Cambridge Science Park are only served Monday-Friday until 19:00.
