APRIL 2013
Stagecoach Services 
    28         Cambourne - St Neots   
   18/18A         Comberton - Cambourne - St Neots   

The 18 has not gone to St Neots for a few years.
Stagecoach no longer runs the 28 service
I wonder how old is the information the County is basing its policy on?

I've swapped the 28 to the other operator list. The breakdown between Stagecoach and others was done off the top of my head so there will be the odd mistake I'm sure.

The 28 Cambourne-St Neots is run by Whippets under contract to Stagecoach who have the contract with the council - its complicated!

One early finisher is the 19 Ely city service which ended yesterday after being replaced by Norfolk Green's absolutely! service which is funded as part of a Section 106 planning agreement provided by Sainsburys/East Cambridgeshire District Council

Of these services do we expect any to be converted to commerical services?

Does anyone know if the entire 16/17 service is subsidised or is the Beehive Centre to Fen Estate section commerical?

It's not dishonest to only point out the cost per journey of the most expensive route in the face of the article, but it is certainly misleading to not also point out that also among the cuts are 8 services with a subsidy per journey of less than £1.

Owww... but consultation. Nice to see the council haven't jumped any guns this time.

Oh wait a minute... they have!

Anyway.......... nice idea to get a new set of Cambs timetable books (with maps!) in the Spring/Summer. Buy while stocks last will be more than just the book on this occasion...

The 28 Cambourne-St Neots is run by Whippets under contract to Stagecoach who have the contract with the council - its complicated!

Today I was told by a County Council officer that Whippet have the 28 contract, that the 18 details were incorrect( should run to Gamlingay)
Also included are some services that  are at least part subsidised by the Education Department for post 16 training.(Outside of Judicial review)

The citi 4 extension to St, Neots is wholly section 106 funded by the Love Farm development. I had wrongly assumed that part of the subsidy on the old 18 service that went to St. Neots was transferred to the citi 4 service. The implication is that when the S106 money finishes (3years ?) Eltisley will have no bus service.
