Alterations to times from Sunday 24th October

posted 12 October 2021 on behalf of Stagecoach

Like many transport operators across the UK, we are facing a short-term staffing situation that is out of our control due to external factors. Our team are doing a fantastic job in the circumstances, and we are working hard to get the new drivers who are in our training pipeline on the road as soon as possible. We would like to thank all of our passengers for their patience as we deal with this.

As a result, we are implementing changes to some of our timetables from Sunday 24 October.

See below for a summary of changes to Busway routes & the V5:

  • Service A will return to its original route via Histon Road.
  • The Monday-Saturday main day A & B timetable and frequency has not changed.
  • Service A & B will operate an hourly frequency on Sundays and post-peak evenings, providing a combined 30-minute frequency on the main Busway track.
  • On V5 there have been some slight changes made to evening V5 journey times departing Hinchingbrooke Hospital, to allow better onward connections to the Busway B service.
  • V5 Buses currently leave at 10 minutes past the hour from 18:10, but they will now depart 15 minutes earlier, at 55 minutes past the hour from 17:55 until 23:55.

For more information and to read about other routes that are affected by these changes, take a look at our Service Change Booklet.

Stop closures on the weekend of 16-17 October 2021

Defects correction works are required between Oakington and Park Lane Histon on Saturday 16th October. This will require the Busway to be closed (including maintenance track) between Oakington and Park Lane Histon from midnight on Friday 15th October until 05:00 on Sunday 17th October.

This means that the Oakington stops in both directions will be closed. Bus services will continue to operate as scheduled during the closure, with a diversion in place on to the local road network around the closed section. Alternative stops will be located in Station Road and Cambridge Road. Notices will be in place at the Oakington stops.
