A new bus service between March and St Ives launched today (Monday), calling at Wimblington, Chatteris and Warboys.
Stagecoach is running four round trips a day, with users able to change buses and head on to Cambridge.
An additional bus is also scheduled to leave St Ives for March at 5pm to get people home from medical appointments at Addenbrooke’s.
Chatteris county councillor Anne Hay said: “I would like to thank Mayor James Palmer for taking on board my concerns over the lack of good public transport for the people of Chatteris.”
Mayor Palmer said: “Covid has had a big impact on the number of people using buses and other means of public transport over the last year.

“But we recognise the importance of having a viable and useable transport alternative to the car for people to use as the current pandemic restrictions are lifted.”
Tickets and passes issued by the operator can be used on this service, as well as concessionary free bus passes.
