Bus services There are a number of bus services available from the bus stop at the Caldecote Turn (near the entrance of the Bourn Airfield at the north end of the village): 6

Go Whippet hourly services (Services 01 and 03) to Cambridge city centre and towards Huntingdon (via Cambourne) on weekdays and Saturdays from 7:00am to 6:00pm. 7 Stagecoach hourly service (Citi4) everyday from 7:00am to 11:00pm to Cambridge city centre and St. Neots (via Cambourne). More frequent (every 20 min) Stagecoach service (also shown as Citi4) linking Cambourne and Cambridge during weekdays and Saturdays from 7:00am to 8:00pm.

There is also a single weekday-only bus service through the village (Stagecoach 14), going into Cambridge city centre in the morning (about 7:00am) and returning via the village (about 7:00pm).

Survey results The bus services through and around the village are important to just over half (52%) of the respondents. If the bus services were more frequent, nearly three quarters (70%) of the respondents to whom the bus service is important would use it more – just over 100 respondents. Figure 8: Preferred bus destinations The main preferred destination by bus from our village is Cambridge. St. Neots 7% 10% Just over half of the respondents felt that the Cambourne 9% bus stops were clearly marked (51%). 6% Bar Hill 170 respondents (58%) would make regular 21% Cambridge use of a circular shuttle bus from Hardwick Highfields/Caldecote to the Madingley Park 38% 9% and Ride, if such a service were available. Comberton Bourn

Action points: Liaise with Stagecoach, Whippet and the County Council to determine the best way to address the current unmet needs of bus users. Look at the feasibility of setting up a circular bus route from the village to the Madingley Park and Ride, given the estimated demand. Ensure bus stops are clearly marked and visible.
