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. Our campaigns aim to bring about a transport system that is integrated, accessible, healthy, fair and fit for the future. Read more about how we would like to see this achieved.

What are local parliamentary candidates saying about cycling and transport?

Travel Alliance member organisation Camcycle has published the responses to its 2024 General Election survey. Camcycle asked parliamentary candidates in Cambridge, Ely and East Cambs, Huntingdon, North East Cambs, North West Cambs, Peterborough, South Cambs, and St Neots and Mid Cambs three questions about cycling and transport. You can read their responses here.

What do transport campaigners want to see from the next government? 

Ahead of the General Election on 4 July, a large number of campaigning organisations, professional societies and industry groups have produced their own manifestos containing policy asks for the next government. We took a look at what transport campaigners and professionals are calling for across a wide range of topics and transport modes

Our ambitions for journeys in the Cambridge area

We’ve outlined our ambitions for journeys in the Cambridge area, together with details of ten areas on which we campaign in order to achieve them. Our first ambition is that walking, wheeling, cycling, and taking the bus or the train should always be easy and affordable, making them the ‘go-to’ options for the majority of journeys.

Bus user survey

We carried out a survey of 300+ local bus users in Cambridge, Ely and Huntingdon to find out how they used the bus and what they thought of their services. We found that the bus can be a convenient and pleasant way to travel, but local bus users depend heavily on services which often let them down. We are using our survey results to call for better bus services across the region.

Joint position paper on bus stop infrastructure

Travel Alliance member organisations Cambridge Area Bus Users and Cambridge Living Streets have published a joint position paper on bus stop infrastructure, which outlines the principles they believe should apply. They are using this paper to campaign for better bus stops across Cambridgeshire.
