General information

  • Park and Ride facilities are a good way to avoid driving in the city centre.
  • Car parks provide free all day parking and regular buses to the city centre.
  • Buses drop off and pick up at Emmanuel Street and the Grafton Centre every ten minutes or so throughout the day.
  • Almost all buses used on the park and ride routes are low floor easy access buses. They do not have to be booked in advance. However, please note that there is only one wheelchair space per bus, and that the company do not guarantee that an accessible bus will be used. If you are going to be using the Park and Ride service regularly and need a wheelchair accessible bus, it might be a good idea to let them know when you will be travelling.


There are Park and Ride facilities at:

Madingley Road including the West Cambridge site
