Stagecoach has started a consultation to look at improving the local bus timetables. This mainly affects route 26 from Cambridge to Royston whereby this would stop at Trumpington P&R and would give an hourly service between Cambridge and Royston. The MAIN PROBLEM with this is that they will STOP ROUTE 27 from Guilden Morden to Cambridge which runs through Haslingfield. If you feel that this service 27 through Haslingfield should be maintained then please reply to the consultation here before 19th March 2017, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or write to: Stagecoach, 100 Cowley Road, Cambridge, CB4 0DN !
