There are many options for travelling to Granta Park. For further information please see below.

Granta Park is ideally positioned within the Cambridge Science Cluster and benefits from excellent access by road and rail due to its South Cambridge location.

Granta Park is served well by the public transport system with frequent bus and train service from the city centre and surrounding areas. The Park also has a commuter bus service which picks up from both Cambridge Train Station and Whittlesford Parkway Station with a free car sharing scheme.

Granta Park is situated at the crossroads of all the region’s main trunk roads including the A11 (linking with the A14 and M11) and the A505.

Free to join, Granta Park’s car share scheme is a great way to set up a lift share with other staff members commuting to Granta Park. Granta Park has its own dedicated car share website which offers members a quick, easy and secure way to make contact with each other.

Benefits of car sharing include saving money, reducing local congestion and getting to know your colleagues. Remember you don’t need to own a car to car share, you can just search for a lift too.

We are slowly introducing ‘car share only’ parking bays across the Park; to use these you will need a permit.

Please see here for a step-by-step guide on how to register for the scheme or request a parking permit. The ‘car share only’ bays are only available within the Parking Groves and Riverside Buildings car park for the time being.

The N11 cycle route connects Cambridge to Sawston and there is a dedicated off-road cycle path linking Sawston and Babraham. There is a permissive cycle path through Babraham Farm which provides a link between Babraham and the Granta Park main entrance. This route includes a footbridge with cycle wheel ramps across the A11.  Additionally a link to the cycle route along the A1307 was opened in February 2017. This link provides a traffic free cycle route through The Babraham Institute which connects to the existing cycle network.

These cycle routes provide a cycle link between Cambridge and Granta Park as well as the villages to the south of Cambridge including Trumpington, Great Shelford, Stapleford, Sawston and Babraham.

In addition to these routes, there is a 2m wide asphalt surfaced shared footway / cycleway along the northern side of the A505 between Granta Park and Whittlesford Parkway railway station approximately 4km to the southwest of the site.

A narrow 1m to 1.5m wide footway / cycleway is also provided along the northern side of the A1307 between Hildersham and Linton, to the southeast of Granta Park. This provides a cycle link from Linton, with agreement with Cambridgeshire County Council to potentially extend the route to Granta Park in the future.

If you are not keen on cycling alone, why not find a BikeBUDi? The scheme is accessible through the car share website it is free to join and will match individuals cycling the same route so they can cycle together.
