FAO Haslingfield bus users – the 75 bus service

Concerns have been raised locally that the 75 bus service is being withdrawn. Cambs County Council have, however, confirmed that this is incorrect and it is the contract for this service that is expiring. Apparently bus operators have already submitted their applications as part of the re-tendering process and County Councillors are expected to vote on this in March (date tbc). Previous advice was that they expect to maintain services in the short term. The Parish Council has, however, taken this opportunity to write to our assigned County Councillors to both point out the value of this service to its users and seek their reassurance that it will continue.

    Responsibility for Transport in Cambridgeshire was to be transferred to the relatively new Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority next April. The hope is that the way bus services are provided would be put on a sustainable footing. This transfer has been put back one year to April 2020 so Cambridge County Council will continue to fund the subsidised services including the 75 service until then. I am assured that it will continue to run as at present after April this year.
    If you use the bus (or indeed if you don’t) please do everything you can to promote its use. This is the best way to ensure we retain this very useful facility. If you have yet to discover the delights of bus travel, why not give it a try this Spring. Timetables and other useful information can be found on the Travel & Transport page on this website
