Through link from Corby - Cambridge?

Long journey but not a route that currently exists, at least they're trying out new services.


As for covering dead mileage by running routes in service? That's how Ensignbus started the Bluewater-Lakeside X80 service so they didn't have to pay the tolls at Dartford, while operating rail replacements down in Kent. It's now a successful route.

I found it difficult to work out the journeys that would be the through journeys.  I must have missed something in the consultation timetables.
