Changes to some fares in St Neots and Huntingdon on 28 July 2018
Some ticket prices will change If you pay the driver. However, we are introducing new m-Tickets which will mean customers do not need to pay more if they have downloaded our new App on to their mobile phone (see story below). This is because we want less people paying the driver in cash, therefore helping to reduce delays at bus stops. The tickets are:
- St Neots Day Rover – the price will become £2.70, but you will be able to purchase 10 St Neots Day Rovers for £25 on the m-Ticket App (so still £2.50 each)
- St Neots Week Rover – the price will become £11, but you will still be able to purchase a St Neots Week Rover for £10 on the m-Ticket App
- Huntingdon Week Rover – the price will become £13.50, but you will still be able to purchase a Huntingdon Week Rover for £12.50 on the m-Ticket App
Changes to routes 6, 61, 62, 63 and X3 from 28 July 2018
The 62 will no longer operate but more journeys will run on the 61. Buses will no longer operate along Duck Lane, Sandfields Road and Queens Gardens. The afternoon journey on route 63 will no longer run (a journey on the 61 will serve Ernulf Academy from 3 September). Unfortunately route 6 will be withdrawn, due to the changes to other services in St Neots.
The X3 will have a new timetable with a reduction in the number of journeys operated during the daytime. This is due to the ending of a school contract operated on behalf of Cambridgeshire County Council.
Please see the local buses section (within Routes menu or from the home page) to download a PDF copy of the new timetable.

2 December 2017 – Free Parking
On Saturday 2 December we helped the 5th St Ives Scout Group with their latest challenge – a full-size game of Monopoly! The Scouts had to travel between St Ives and Cambridge visiting locations associated with the famous board game. Our Busway C service was ideal as it now operates every 30 minutes on Saturday mornings. Using the bus also means no need to find and pay for parking!
