Cambridge Area Bus Users

Working for bus passengers in and around Cambridge

  • Are you concerned about deteriorating bus services in and around Cambridge?
  • Does your neighbourhood or village have a decent service?
  • What about early mornings, late evenings or Sundays?

Cambridge Area Bus Users was formed to stand up for the interests of bus passengers in and around Cambridge.

  • All bus users in and around Cambridge are welcome to join us.
  • Help us work towards better bus services for the area.
  • Please recommend membership throughout your community.

At the time of writing – Monday 17 September 2018 – we have established a community account with Barclays. We’ll soon be able let you know how to join and pay a modest membership fee (£5.00 per household per year, though no-one will be refused membership for inability to pay).


The next General Meeting will be held at 14:00 – 16:00, on Saturday 6 October 2018 at Ross Street Community Centre, Ross Street, Cambridge, CB1 3UZ. (Location and access details at the foot of this page.)

At the Inaugural General Meeting of Cambridge Area Bus Users there was some considerable discussion as to how the objectives of the group should be defined.

Members, supporters and adherents of Cambridge Area Bus Users – especially those present at the Inaugural General Meeting – are invited to propose new objectives in the comments section, on our Constitution Update page. This page is not for general viewing, so has been password protected. Everyone on the mailing list has been, or will be, notified of the password.

Sadly, however there has been no engagement on this topic, despite the considerable amount of time taken up at the Inaugural General Meeting.


The next General Meeting will be held at 14:00 – 16:00, on Saturday 6 October 2018 at Ross Street Community Centre, Ross Street, Cambridge, CB1 3UZ

Ross Street Community Centre is 250 yards along Ross Street from Mill Road, Cambridge, on the left-hand-side beyond the junction with St Philip’s Road.

The venue is fully accessible.

If you are coming by bus from the city centre, Chesterton or Cambridge North Station catch the citi 2 and alight at the ‘Romsey Terrace’ stop by the Bed Centre, on the corner of Mill Road and Ross Street.

If you are coming by bus from Addenbrooke’s, Perne Road, etc catch the citi 2 and alight at the ‘Romsey Terrace’ stop on Mill Road opposite the Cycle King shop.

There is cycle parking on the premises and on the street nearby. On-street car parking is available, free but limited.

Note: The Conference Room in Cambridge Central Library (the venue for our Inaugural General Meeting) was unavailable. Ross Street is considerably cheaper than the alternatives which we investigated.
