The 46 bus service that runs between March and Wisbech will be saved, councillors have revealed.
The vital route will now continue to operate from April 30 until August 25 2018.
It comes as around 500 people signed a petition organised by the Wisbech Labour Party branch to save the service a few weeks ago.
Speaking today, Wisbech councillor Virginia Bucknor said: “Today I have received an update from Cambridgeshire County Council about Bus Service 46. This service will now continue to operate from April 30 until August 25 2018.
“What happens after August I don’t know yet.”

The service had been under review by Cambridgeshire County Council after an agreement to transfer most of the routes threatened by Stagecoach’s decision to pull out of operations in King’s Lynn.
Councillor Steve Count leader of Cambridgeshire County Council, explained: “Basically something is happening. A press release is being prepared as we speak. There are a number of sensitive issues being addressed so I don’t want to pre-empt official release.”
