The Cambridgeshire Autonomous Metro (CAM) proposal by the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority (CPCA) is for a metro-style network that seamlessly connects regional settlements, major city fringe employment sites and key satellite growth areas across the region with key railway stations and Cambridge city centre, helping to nurture and sustain long-term regional economic growth.
Four regional routes will connect St Neots, Alconbury, Mildenhall and Haverhill with the city of Cambridge. CAM is currently expected to use a technologically advanced, sustainable, highly flexible trackless electric vehicle. The project is currently out for public consultation from 21st February to 23rd April 2020.
The benefits that will arise from CAM include:
The Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority (CPCA) is the Transport Authority responsible for transport planning and public transport in the area. It brings together the councils of the area and is led by the elected mayor.
