MK Connect

Milton Keynes Council is replacing all the subsidised bus routes with Demand Response Transport from the 1st April 2021. This means that the current No. 18 bus service that services the Old Woughton Parish will cease on the 31st March 2021. All the non-subsidised bus routes remain. Click here for information about what bus routes will continue to operate after the 1st April 2021.

MK Connect works like a minibus that comes when you want, where you want — book a ride straight from your phone, get picked up in minutes, and be dropped within a short walk of your destination.

Passengers with a wheelchair or disability will always be matched with a fully accessible vehicle, and the service is accessible to passengers with additional vision, hearing and other requirements.

Service hours:             Monday-Saturday 6am-11pm.

                                      Sunday 9am-6pm.

Price:                           £3.50 during peak hours (7am-9am, 4.30pm-6.30pm),

                                     £2.50 at all other times.

Concessionary cards and AllinOne cards will be accepted on DRT at the same times as on buses.

The new Demand Response Transport is called MK Connect and will be provided by MK Council’s partner, Via. Details of how the service will work can be found here.

At the last Parish Council meeting on the 8th March there was a presentation from MK Councillor Jennifer Wilson-Marklew on the new Demand Response Transport system. A number of questions were raised by residents and councillors. These questions and the answers given can be found in Annex C of the minutes from that meeting. Click here to see the minutes.
