Reinstate through Citi 8 services to Cambridge Station and Addenbrooke's

This petition had 852 supporters

Because of congestion within Cambridge Stagecoach now terminates the Citi 8 service from Cottenham through Histon & Impington and along the Histon Road in the centre of Cambridge whereas previously it has continued to Cambridge Station and Addenbrooke's. This means that passengers to and from these destinations must change buses to continue their journeys.

Changing buses is not easy because there is poor signage, it extends journey times and is particularly worrisome for older people, for those who are disabled and for those who might be going for or returning from treatment at Addenbrooke's.

Furthermore the Citi 8 bus no longer stops at the same bays as incoming buses from Cambridge Station and Addenbrooke’s. Passengers must first cross St Andrews Street and then Emmanuel Street to get to the Citi 8 bay (where there is no bus shelter for this 20 minute interval bus service) for continued travel towards Cottenham. 

Cambridgeshire County Council and/or the Greater Cambridge Partnership are asked to:

1 work with Stagecoach to eliminate the delays that currently occur south of the city centre so that Stagecoach can reinstate through services; and in the meantime

2 improve the signage at the city centre bus interchange so that it is clear to arriving travellers which bus to board to complete their ongoing journeys.
