What are your ‘Choices for Better Journeys’?


26-03-2019

There's still time to express your views in Greater Cambridge Partnership's (GCP's) Choices for Better Journeys survey about future travel in the Greater Cambridge area and beyond. GCP is asking for your opinions on a range of issues through an online survey that runs until Sunday 31 March.

Background

In autumn 2017, GCP’s Big Conversation asked people about the travel challenges they faced and their ideas for the future.

Many people said that a more affordable public transport network, with better service availability and reliability, would be of great benefit to them. People also criticised the level of congestion in the Greater Cambridge area.

GCP has looked at how it could significantly improve public transport across the area, alongside continued improvements to walking and cycling provision, to give people better choices for travelling into and around Cambridge.

Your views needed

It is now asking for your views on a range of issues and ideas, including:

  • proposals to transform public transport to offer a better alternative to the car
  • different options for tackling congestion, improving air quality and freeing-up road space
  • funding a future improved public transport system.

 Choices for Better Journeys will run until 31 March.

Please complete the survey to give your views.

The survey has been developed in collaboration with Cambridge Ahead and in association with Cambridge Network and the Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce.
