Revised Bus Services During Coronavirus Period

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, bus companies are making temporary changes to their timetable.  Please check with your bus company before travelling.

Check your bus timetable.

From 1st April a number of bus services will be moving from Fixed Route buses to Demand Responsive Transport. This only effects Council funded services and does not impact on commercial bus routes. We will be providing more information on exactly which bus routes are impacted, and how to use the new service over the coming weeks.

Bus services

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.

Use our new interactive map and journey planner to plan your next bus trip and find bus stops, timetables and ticketing information.

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.

Journey planner

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.
