CAMBRIDGESHIRE'S Transport Commission has received more than 1,000 responses to its public call for evidence, which closed on Friday.
Commission chairman Sir Brian Briscoe said: "I'm delighted by the level of response we've had. The people of Cambridgeshire have strong views, and many of the questions we'll be asking of witnesses at the public hearings come straight from the comments people have submitted online.
"The public's views are a really vital part of the process so it's great to have got so much input."
At stake is the possibility of �500million of Government cash to improve public transport and facilities for cyclists and pedestrians, in exchange for a possible congestion-charging regime in the city of Cambridge.
