Students with bikes at Studio Cambridge

Travelling around Cambridge

You may wish to travel around the city by bike or bus during your stay.  

Bicycles

This is the favourite and most traditional way for getting around Cambridge, which has many cycle lanes to separate bikes from car traffic.  We recommend that you only hire bicycles (approximately £17.00 per week, plus a deposit) if you are a competent cyclist and confident about cycling on English roads.

Visit https://www.visitcambridge.org/things-to-do/on-your-bike/cycle-hire for bike hire details

Buses

An alternative to the bike would be to use the local bus services.  You can buy a 'Citi' bus pass (approximately £15.00 per week), which is called a 'Megarider'.  These can be bought on the buses by asking the driver directly.  There is a bus stop directly in front of the school. Studio staff will also be able to help you choose the correct bus, which will take you to and from the school or city centre.
