Welcome to Cambridge Sustainable Travel Alliance

We aim to unite and inspire people in Cambridgeshire working for a transport network that protects our future and offers genuine choice.

Our vision is of a thriving region of opportunity and inclusion where people can get to where they want to be safely, easily and affordably. We believe that places should be designed around people, and streets organised in line with the hierarchy of road users.

The alliance was founded in response to the Greater Cambridge Partnership (GCP) consultation on a Sustainable Travel Zone (STZ) for Cambridge. We support the principle of a STZ and believe the funding and opportunity it presents would offer a unique moment to reshape the city and wider county around the needs of its people. The consultation closed on 23 December 2022 and a consultation report was published on 26 May 2023.

Read our full consultation response and an initial response to the consultation report.

Following the GCP’s consultation, we commissioned a representative YouGov survey of Cambridgeshire residents to find out more about what the public thought about the scheme. 39% supported the STZ which, based on international evidence on road charging schemes, we believe should encourage decision-makers to continue to develop their plans. There was also a strong desire for action on climate change and affordability, so it is important for local authorities to focus on the work needed to ensure a ‘just transition’ to a greener and thriving region.

Find out more about the YouGov survey results.

We continue to work for better sustainable transport for everyone in our region: our latest consultation guide has been created to help people respond to the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority’s Bus Strategy consultation which closes at 5pm on 24 February.
