The Department for Transport’s funding contribution to the Cambridgeshire Guided Bus was capped at a maximum of £92.5m when the scheme was approved in 2006. This amount has been paid in full to the scheme promoter, Cambridgeshire County Council. The Government has not been asked to provide any additional funding above this amount.
