About the Service

East Cambs Connect is  new bookable, flexible, door to door, mini bus service for EVERYONE living, working and visiting East Cambridgeshire who can’t access scheduled bus services to where they want to go. It started on Monday 3 April 2017. The service is managed by Cambridgeshire County Council who has contracted ESACT to run the service Monday to Friday from 7am to 7pm. The telephone booking line is available Monday to Friday from 9am to 1pm. You need to book at least a day in advance. Tel No. 01353 612699 email: total.transport@cambridgeshire.gov.uk The area covered is shown on the map below. Click on this map and it will take you to an interactive map. The area covered by East Cambs Connect also includes access to WWT Welney which is just inside Norfolk and north of Ely. 

Unfortunately, the service at present, does not include access to Newmarket as it is in Suffolk. However the Supporters' Group will be encouraging the Cambridgeshire County Council to find a solution to this issue.

Please be aware that you may not be taken directly to you destination - like a normal taxi service. Passengers may be picked up and dropped off along route. Some passengers may have disabilities and take longer to alight and disembark. You will be picked up and dropped off at appropriately your requested time. If you have a specific appointment, please allow extra time, in case of any delays on route.

Please note: the service is likely to be busy around 07:30-09:30 hrs in the morning and between 15:00-17:00 hrs during the afternoon.
