Travel by busA weekly Megarider ticket costs approximately £15 from the bus driver and you can use this as many times as you wish for 7 days on any Citi bus. All residences are close to bus stops with frequent travel times into and around the city.

Travel by bicycle
Cambridge is often known as the ‘city of cycling’ as many of its residents choose to cycle around the city. If you are studying for a short amount of time, you can easily hire a bike from Rutland Cycling.

However, if your are staying for a long course, it may be cheaper to purchase a bike, either second hand or brand new from shops like: Rutland Cycling, Cycle King, and Giant Cambridge. Just remember to always wear a helmet and use a good quality lock, and never buy second-hand until you have seen the bike.
