The fastest service is normally had by changing at Ely, not Cambridge.

National Express coach is by far the most convenient way ... just as fast and much less hassle than the train

I can't agree that the coach is "much less hassle" than the train. The train really isn't difficult, the station is on the airport and there's one easy change to negotiate at either Cambridge or Ely. The quicker connection is usually from the latter, the former a better choice if you want to grab a coffee or similar. I think both changes are on the flat, certainly at Cambridge it is, no steps or anything to negotiate

It's also not "just as quick". The rail journey can be made in less than 2 hours if you catch the right connection

It is cheaper however, and 2.5 hours is pretty good for that journey. On balance it's probably the option I'd choose, I'm just correcting inaccuracies

I travelled Stansted to Norwich recently for the first time and used the 727 coach service. It's not bad, but it does veer all around the world - in and out of a number of small towns en-route.

Next time I intend to use the train via Ely or Cambridge whichever best links in to my arrival time at Stansted.
