Coronavirus Update Close

We all need to do whatever we can to protect each other from Coronavirus, so in line with the latest government guidance, there are measures in place to help you to travel with confidence, including limiting available seats on buses and enhanced cleaning. Unless you’re exempt, you must wear a face covering when using public transport, throughout your journey. Please avoid busy times, use contactless payment where you can and take your litter with you. For up to date information see our Coronavirus page.

There are temporary timetables in Wales between 25 October and 9 November due to a two-week Welsh Government lockdown.

  •  Double deck buses operate on this route so bikes must be folded, bagged and kept with you at all times.
  • 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.


A new timetable will be in operation on the 905 route from Sunday 15th November:
