Cambridge is on track to be the first city in the UK to have a ground-breaking autonomous shuttle service as part of its public transport network, after a successful bid for £3.2milllion of Government funding to develop trial vehicles.
This ambitious programme is improving Cambridgeshire and Peterborough’s broadband, mobile and Wi-Fi coverage, whilst harnessing technological innovation to meet transport and other challenges through the Smart Cambridge programme.
The Connecting Cambridgeshire partnership is led by Cambridgeshire County Council, working with local councils, the Government’s Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK) body, telecoms providers, technology businesses, university researchers and partner organisations to maintain Cambridgeshire's position as a leading digital county.
