Buses – Citi 2

The Citi 2 provides a service into Cambridge and on to Addenbrooke’s hospital. In the day time the service only goes as far as the Science Park (shown in red on the map) however it runs from Milton into Cambridge in the morning peak and from Cambridge to Milton in the evening peak and again late evening (shown in blue on the map) and on to Waterbeach and Landbeach.

Even in the day time the Citi 2 service can still be useful as if you need to get to somewhere the Citi 2 serves it’s possible to get on a Park & Ride bus, purchase a Dayrider, get off opposite the Science Park, walk across and get onto the next Citi 2 bus. Alternatively get a 9, again on a Dayrider, to the stop opposite the Golden Hind and change there.

The Citi 2 service runs from Monday to Saturday service from the Science Park through Chesterton via Green End Road and Chesterton High Street into the city centre at Emmanuel Street. It then continues to Addenbrooke’s hospital via Mill Road and the ring road (with a short detour into the Birdwood Road estate). See box at the bottom for full route. The entire journey takes about 50 minutes end to end.

The return service follows basically the same route except it stops in St Andrews Street rather than Emmanuel Street.

You can find bus timetables and maps on the County Council web site and Stagecoach have details of their services online including timetables and maps.
