Latest information on bus transport services for Fenstanton

Posted: 11/10/2018


Following notification on Tuesday 9th October by Cambridgeshire County Council of the cancellation by Whippet Coaches of the Busway Route C as of 9th November 2018 and in particular to address the resulting negative impact of this decision on Fenstanton Parishioners.

Fenstanton Parish Council has:

• Met with counterparts in St Ives Town Council, with the topic discussed at a Full Town Council Meeting
• Met with the Transport Manager at Cambridgeshire County Council
• Met with and been in contact with counterparts from surrounding Parish Councils.

As a result, and against a back of a full transport review across the new Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority currently underway by Mayor Palmer’s office, a number of both interim and longer term options are currently being investigated including:

• Ongoing discussions with other bus service providers currently serving the Village about additional services/extension to services between Fenstanton and St Ives
• The possibility of a shuttle service between Fenstanton, St Ives Town Centre, St Ives P&R, Morrisons, underwritten by Morrison’s transport fund
• The possibility of a community bus service linking Fenstanton to St Ives and surrounding villages
• The possibility of a Fenstanton community car share scheme.

These will be tabled at the Fenstanton Parish Council meeting on Thursday, 11th October 2018

In light of this rapidly developing situation, we would urge all Fenstanton households to complete and return the bus survey as soon as possible, enabling the Parish Council to provide detailed evidence to Cambridgeshire County Council and the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority of the ongoing need for a regular and reliable bus service for the village.
