A quick way to get into Cambridge and ideal to use if you have an appointment at addenbrookes. However it can work out very expensive if there's a group of you and it would actually be cheaper to drive in and park as a group!

Buses are overcrowded with standing room only after st ives. Not frequent enough- if you miss one it is 15mins till the next one even at peak times. Bumpy ride too.
