Stagecoach East hosts community forum to determine travel needs in Cambridge

Stagecoach East today announced that they held a public forum on Thursday May 26 2022 at Longsands Academy in St Neots, to hear local residents’ views about bus travel in Cambridge.

The consultation, which was held alongside the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority, gave residents in St Neots the opportunity to meet Stagecoach East representatives, express their views on bus travel within Cambridgeshire and discover ticket options offered by the regional bus operator.

Stagecoach East’s Business Development Director, David Boden, was in attendance, joined by Dr Nik Johnson, the Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority and Councillor Stephen Ferguson.

Local residents were invited to attend and give feedback on bus services in Cambridge, as well as wider bus travel within Cambridgeshire, including Stagecoach East’s responsive bus service ‘Ting’ and their X5/905 routes.

Darren Roe, Managing Director at Stagecoach East, said: “We take the views and feedback of our customers very seriously, and are always keen to hear from those within the local community about how they think we can improve our bus services.

“This forum gave us an opportunity to better understand the needs and travel requirements of local residents. This type of customer feedback is crucial in developing and enhancing our network going forwards.

“We are dedicated to listening to our local communities and we would like to thank everyone who attended the forum and contributed towards the discussion.”

Dr Nik Johnson, the Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority, said: “It was great to see such a large turnout of people passionate about improving bus services for their local community.

“Persuading people to use their cars less and public transport more is not an easy feat. Forums like this help us to better understand where change is most necessary to support them in making that change for themselves and the environment.

“I really appreciate the time and feedback that everybody who attended the event gave to help shape the future of buses in St Neots and Cambridgeshire.”
