We have updated our transport insights document for Q1 2024 – available in slide pack and pdf formats on this page: Transport Data Insights

Headlines from Q1 2024:

  • Total Park & Ride passenger numbers continue to exceed 2019 levels – sitting at 22% above the volumes seen in March 2019.
  • Vehicular flows on the strategic road network have remained at/near pre-COVID levels (+2% overall).
  • Local road vehicular flow continues to sit below pre-Covid levels (-9%).
  • Multi-storey car park use is 18% below 2019 levels. Weekend usage continues to be closer to recovery than weekdays.
  • Retail footfall in central Cambridge is now 7% below pre-Covid levels, although weekends (-5%) are closer to recovery than weekdays (-8%).

Context: each quarter, the transport sub-section of Cambridgeshire County Council’s Policy & Insight Team publish a slide pack which seeks to summarise how transport and mobility is recovering / has recovered from the impacts of Covid-19.

This includes metrics relating to strategic road usage, local road usage, footfall levels, air quality, car park usage and levels of active travel.
