A new service launched on 7th April 2015 which should reduce congestion for commuters. The Route R service from Trumpington Park & Ride to Cambridge Rail Station runs at peak hours every 15 mins. The journey only takes 5 minutes as the bus runs on the Guided Busway and is thus unaffected by traffic jams on the roads. By parking in Trumpington P&R and taking the Route R bus, commuters could save themselves time and money. Here is a link to a flyer about the new route and here is one to a booklet with more info including prices and a timetable. There is also a 1-min speeded up video showing the route, and a link to further information if you require it.
Cambridgeshire County Council is looking for Meet and Greet Volunteers who can spare a few hours on a regular basis ( on Saturdays).
It’s a great way to meet new people and feel part of the community

All are welcome to attend this event in Cambridge on Wednesday 18th February 2015 from
4.30 – 8.30pm.
It’s time to make the most of those long winter nights as museums and collections across the city open their doors for after dark fun. With thirteen venues offering an exciting range of drop-in and bookable events throughout the evening, there will be loads for families to see and explore. Why not take part in some torch-lit space exploration at the Whipple Museum; discover a world of deep sea darkness at The Polar Museum; or create some ‘Creatures of Twilight’ at the Museum of Cambridge?
The evening is all about fun and discovery and remember, the more places you visit, the more you will be able to see and do. Pick up a Twilight ‘What’s On’ guide and passport from participating venues to help you plan and record your journey.
So wrap up warm, grab a torch and get ready for adventure! More details can be found here:
