Getting here

There are many ways you can travel to our hospitals.

Park and ride

Our hospitals have direct and quick links with many of the Cambridgeshire Park and Ride sites.

On-site courtesy bus

Immediate action required: Courtesy bus during Covid-19

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we will not be running the courtesy bus service until further notice.

We run a courtesy bus to make it easier for patients and visitors to get around the hospital site.

The bus runs Monday to Friday between 7.30am and 4pm (excluding bank holidays). A limited service runs 4 – 5pm.

The bus is scheduled to run every 10 minutes but may be delayed by other users’ needs.

The main route is:

  • Car park 1
  • Addenbrooke’s Treatment Centre
  • Car park 2
  • Rosie Maternity Hospital
  • MRIs
  • R Block
  • Oncology
  • Outpatients

The bus runs on a set route and will divert to an area on request if possible.

Generous donations from Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust (ACT) supporters for equipment and services such as the patient courtesy bus mean that we can continue to make Addenbrooke’s and the Rosie Hospitals even better for patients.
