Time to switch to public transport
Milton Keynes is constantly striving to improve its public transport usage and accessibility. We have buses, trains and coaches to help you reach your destination whilst becoming more sustainable!
There are over 40 routes running through Milton Keynes to improve sustainable accessibility around the area. Bus stops are located in all estates and at key destinations including train stations, shopping centres, business and industrial parks.
Buses to locations such as Bedford, Luton, Leighton Buzzard, Northampton, Aylesbury and further afield destinations such as Oxford or Cambridge are available from Milton Keynes.
You’ll be pleased to hear that there are now a number of buses in MK which have USB charging for your smart phone or tablet and provide free wi-fi too, so you can stay in touch and catch up with work while you travel.
Milton Keynes Council subsidises a number of services, particularly in the evening and at weekends in order to ensure a good network for our users.
Most buses in Milton Keynes are low floor and accessible.
Our new interactive journey planner lets you plan your journey more accurately than ever before, locate bus stops and see timetable and ticketing information for when your bus is due to arrive so you can plan your journey more accurately.

Get a taxi
For many people it is possible to use a combination of buses, trains, cycling and walking to reach most destinations in Milton Keynes. But sometimes that’s just not practical and a taxi will fill the gap. Major train stations and CMK have taxi ranks and there are also a number of reputable private hire/mini cab firms in MK. Use the councils public registers list to find a licensed taxi firm or driver.
