With funding from the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority, the Connecting Cambridgeshire programme is installing travel information screens in 11 market towns across the county (November 2021).
The travel information screens follow in the footsteps of the original SmartPanel screens, which have already been installed in the foyers of public buildings and large companies in and around Cambridge city since 2018.
Offering live and time-tabled travel data the screens will be customised to each location to show live bus and train times, road traffic maps and weather reports. They use a combination of real-time and static, timetabled data to provide more accurate predictions of travel times and encourage the use of sustainable transport options.
Travel screens have been installed in libraries at Chatteris, Huntingdon, March, Ramsey, St Ives and Whittlesey, the Priory Centre in St Neots and New Shire Hall in Alconbury. Further screens will be installed in Ely and Wisbech libraries and the Soham Co-Op by the end of November 2021.
