Northstowe News

A hub of connectivity

The recently opened Cambridge North Railway Station is being served by new bus services from Northstowe to accommodate increased demand thanks to Stagecoach – making our town and residents even better-connected.

Cambridge North welcomed its first passengers in May of this year, serving the north of the city and helping to relieve pressure on Cambridge’s main station to the south.

The station is located just ten minutes from Northstowe and is easily accessed via the Cambridgeshire Guided Busway.

Cambridge North will serve the city’s northern suburbs and technology parks, with services transporting passengers to and from London with additional services between Cambridge and Norwich, one to Ely and another through to King’s Lynn. The station also boasts a cycle park with capacity for 1,000 bikes and a 450-space car park, encouraging commuters to travel more sustainably.

10,000 new homes are planned for Northstowe, with the first residents already settled in to Phase 1 developments built near the Longstanton Park & Ride for easy access to the guided bus way.

To deal with the increased demand on the roads into Cambridge, Stagecoach has registered new bus services, which are already in operation from Northstowe to the new station and the city centre.

Stagecoach is offering a 20-minute service from 7am to 7pm, and the six extra buses that already operate on the guided busway will also serve Cambridge North station, in response to the boost in use during peak times.
