It's thanks to Cambridgeshire County Council that this progressive transport link has come about, so using the bus is now an even smarter and speedier choice. The guideway track – now the longest in the world – is made up of two concrete beams with kerbs and guide wheels on the bus connect with the kerb and run along it to steer the bus. Stagecoach and Go Whippet are the two bus companies running services for the busway.
Stagecoach is a well-respected national brand but locally run, with its focus clearly on providing top quality bus services to people in the city of Cambridge and many towns and villages nearby. It is at the forefront of technological developments and it has many awards to its credit. Stagecoach takes environmental issues very seriously and all buses on routes A & B run on bio fuel.
Go Whippet is a long standing family business that has been serving the people of Cambridgeshire for nearly a century and, in that time, has built up an enviable reputation for friendly service and that personal touch. Go Whippet's guided buses have the latest Euro 5 engines, which are among the most environmentally friendly diesel engines around.
