Driving and parking
With over 25,000 people visiting the campus every day there is a constant demand for on-site travel options across the Cambridge Biomedical Campus (CBC). The car parks across the campus are consistently operating at capacity, and there is increased pressure on the roads and transport infrastructure approaching the site. Therefore car parking spaces on site for CUH staff cannot be guaranteed.
We encourage all new starters and existing staff to use public transport and the Park & Ride facilities wherever possible.
Given the high number of people visiting the campus on a daily basis whether as patients, staff or visitors, there has been increasing pressure on the available car parking space.
All of our on-site car parks are under constant pressure, even more so during the winter months, and the demand for car parking provision is set to further increase as other organisations join us on the campus later this year.
Given the pressure on car parking, and the reduction in the number of available spaces, the Trust has recently undertaken an extensive review of the criteria to ensure the available spaces are prioritised to those staff who need them most, or have limited opportunity to use alternative methods of transport. Onsite staff parking will be approved in line with the Trust parking eligibility criteria. Eligibility to park does not guarantee you a space.
We ask all of our staff members to consider the way they travel to and from work and seek to use alternative means of transport if it is possible to do so. For further information, please speak to the Access office on 01223 596060 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Trust car share scheme is open to everyone who works on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus. A specific area in the multi-story car park is allocated to drivers who bring in one or more colleagues to work.
A number of staff travel to Campus by motorcycle, dedicated free parking is available in a number of locations.
For members of staff on a permanent contract, or fixed-term contract with more than two years to run, interest-free loans are available for the purchase of a motorcycle or scooter up to 250 cc maximum engine size and for associated accessories.
