The busway is a dedicated piece of track which the buses’ wheels fit into.
- Low land usage
- Land between the tracks can be used for drainage
- No other vehicles can use the track
- Smooth ride
The bus-way opened in 2009, costing £116 million, built between St Ives and Cambridge. The aim is to provide an alternate route to car use along the congested A14.
- Links various villages
- Each stop has a shelter and cycle parking
- Park and ride facilities are available in St Ives, Longstanton and Cambridge
- Provides a fast service to Cambridge every ten minutes.
- Buses upon reaching Cambridge can leave the bus-way and enter normal roads.
- Paths beside the bus-way for pedestrians and cyclists
- Area being replanted and landscaped after construction
