The Greater Cambridge Partnership 

The greater cambridge parnership has just launched Choices for Better Journeys – a public engagement campaign about future travel in the Greater Cambridge area and beyond.


In autumn 2017, Our Big Conversation asked people about the travel challenges they faced and their ideas for the future. Many people said that a more affordable public transport network, with better availability and reliability, would be of great benefit to them, and criticised the level of congestion in the Greater Cambridge area.

They have looked at how they could significantly improve public transport across the area, alongside continued improvements to walking and cycling provision, to give people better choices for travelling into and around Cambridge.

Your views needed

They are now asking for people’s views on a range of issues and ideas, including:

  • proposals to transform public transport to offer a better alternative to the car;
  • different options for tackling congestion, improving air quality and freeing-up road space; and
  • funding a future improved public transport system.

Choices for Better Journeys will run until 31 March, please complete the survey to tell us your views.

The survey has been developed in collaboration with Cambridge Ahead and in association with Cambridge Network and the Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce.

Further information and Next Steps

They are hosting a number of public events across the region that you are welcome to attend.

Choices for Better Journeys will be asking people about ideas and principles for better public transport, reducing congestion and improving air quality. Following this engagement, the GCP Executive Board will consider feedback and next steps.

If you have any questions on Choices for Better Journeys, please don't hesitate to contact them by emailing or calling 01223 699906.
