Guided Busway

Back to Activities

The Guided Busway is part of a public transport network that connects Cambridge to other parts of the county by bus. Alongside the guided bus tracks is a wide path that is ideal for walking, running, cycling and exploring.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • the flat, wide and smooth path by the Guided Busway is ideal for exercising – including activities such as inline and roller skating;
  • you can use the Guided Busway as a way to explore villages and the countryside – including RSPB Fen Drayton Lakes;
  • getting outside and in the fresh air is energising.

What to expect

The Guided Busway is approximately 16 miles of bus track that enables buses to travel at speed along a former railway line. It is part of a bigger network of bus routes using conventional roads.

Alongside the Guided Busway is a wide tarmac path that is smooth, straight and ideal for cyclists, runners and walkers. It is also accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs.

In South Cambs, the Guided Busway connects bus stops at Orchard Park East and West; Histon & Impingon; Oakington; Longstanton Park & Ride; Swavesey; Fen Drayton Lakes and then onwards to St Ives.

The stop at Fen Drayton Lakes provides easy access on foot to RSPB Fen Drayton Lakes – you can find out more abouth this nature reserve on this link.
