We have updated our transport insights document for Q4 2023 – available in slide pack and pdf formats on this page: Transport Data Insights

Headlines from Q4 2023:

  • Park & Ride passenger numbers overall continue to exceed 2019 levels.
  • Vehicular flow recovery on the strategic road network continues to progress – and is now 6% ahead of 2019 levels.
  • Multi-storey car park use is 11% below 2019 levels. This is the closest to pre-Covid since the Park Street facility closed for redevelopment in early 2022.
  • Retail footfall in central Cambridge has dropped to 15% below pre-Covid levels, although weekends (-8%) are far closer to recovery than weekdays (-25%).

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.
