Cambridge's Park & Ride system has 5 out-of-town parking sites, with buses every 10 minutes providing easy access to the city centre. The service runs 7 days a week, and parking is free at the large, well-equipped car parks.
There are three coloured routes on the system:
- The Green Route: Serves Babraham Road and Milton (via the city centre), providing access from the north and south-east of the city.
- The Red Route: Serves Madingley Road and Newmarket Road (via the city centre), giving access from the north-west/west and north-east/east of the city.
- The Blue Route: Serves only Trumpington Road and the city centre, providing access from the south-west of the city.
Each Park & Ride site has its own traditional cache. They are not placed on the sites themselves (as this is privately owned by the City Council), but within a 5-minute walk of each site's bus stop.
The set of caches has been designed so that they can all be done in a day using the Park & Ride buses themselves. A ticket can be purchased (called a Dayrider) that gives unlimited travel on Cambridge's buses for one day. As all the Park & Ride buses call at the city centre (and the Grafton shopping centre), it's easy to change from one to another to visit all the sites and get back again.
This cache: This cache is a large 2.5 litre clip-lid box. Please take care to cover it up after you've found it to keep it out of sight!
