Stagecoach is running services on the world’s longest busway after the successful opening of the multi-million-pound public transport link.
The revolutionary new link offers a reliable, fast and frequent service seven days a week between Huntingdon, St Ives and Cambridge, giving locals a high-quality alternative to the long queues and uncertain journey times on the notoriously congested A14.
Stagecoach, one of two operators providing services on The Busway, is using a £3 m fleet of 20 luxury buses fitted with small rubber guide wheels.
“The Busway is a visionary project,” said Andy Campbell, Managing Director for Stagecoach in Cambridge.
We believe that our luxury buses, with free wi-fi internet access, will encourage more people out of their cars and on to the route. I am pleased to see so many people trying out the new system, which provides a quick and smooth journey.
