Launch of Choices for Better Journeys: Continuing Our Big Conversation

The Greater Cambridge Partnership has just launched Choices for Better Journeys – a public engagement campaign about future travel in the Greater Cambridge area and beyond.

We would appreciate if you can forward this email to your Parish Councillors and anyone else who may be interested.


In autumn 2017, Our Big Conversation asked people about the travel challenges they faced and their ideas for the future. Many people said that a more affordable public transport network, with better availability and reliability, would be of great benefit to them, and criticised the level of congestion in the Greater Cambridge area.

We have looked at how we could significantly improve public transport across the area, alongside continued improvements to walking and cycling provision, to give people better choices for travelling into and around Cambridge.

Your views needed

We are now asking for people’s views on a range of issues and ideas, including:

  • proposals to transform public transport to offer a better alternative to the car;
  • different options for tackling congestion, improving air quality and freeing-up road space; and
  • funding a future improved public transport system.

Choices for Better Journeys will run until 31 March, please complete the survey to tell us your views.

The survey has been developed in collaboration with Cambridge Ahead and in association with Cambridge Network and the Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce.

Further information and Next Steps

We are hosting a number of public events across the region that you are welcome to attend and we hope to see you there.

Choices for Better Journeys will be asking people about ideas and principles for better public transport, reducing congestion and improving air quality. Following this engagement, the GCP Executive Board will consider feedback and next steps.

If you have any questions on Choices for Better Journeys, please don’t hesitate to contact us by emailing or calling 01223 699906.

Kind regards,

Livia Oldland
