Note to self, getting St Albans confused with Saffron Waldon is… - Sally's Journal
Note to self, getting St Albans confused with Saffron Waldon is stupid. What's the best way of getting to St Albans from Cambridge for 7pm on a Monday evening?
Sally is in a hyper LJ mood today isn't she?

A direct logical consequence of this
, I'd have thought? 8-)

And seems to suggest you want to
a) drive, or
b) get a train from Cambridge to Stevenage, get a train from Stevenage to Hatfield, and get an Arriva-the-Shires-&-Essex/724 bus towards London/Heathrow, getting off at St Albans bus/train interchange.
c) train from Cambridge to Hitchin, National Express 787 to Luton, train to St Albans

Less-complicatedly, train to KX + train from KX thameslink to St Albans thameslink. Probably costs more, but I'd imagine the timing is a lot more flexible since thameslink trains go every 1/4 hour or so, and I'm not convinced it'd take longer than the above public transport routes.

Oh, that's a point. Almost bound to be faster, given the greater number of fast trains into KX as well.
Given that transportdirect.info is apparently run by Transport for London, I wonder if they're deliberately suppressing routes that involve bouncing off a London terminus?
At a guess I imagine the quickest would probably be the non-stop train to KX and then get the Thameslink back out again...
but that involves going into London, so may be more expensive then alternative longer routes.
All train is definitely quickest and most flexible.
I would suggest train to Stevenage and bus from there probably wouldn't be too bad, as the buses go from near the station in Stevenage (though I woyuldn't recommend it if you're returning that night, as Stevenage town centre can get a tad dicey). Don't know times though, and assuming you have a Network card, the all-train may not be markedly more expensive...
