Public transport one click or call away

MK Connect forms part of an integrated public transport network supporting key routes with smaller on demand vehicles.

A single journey costs £3.50 during peak hours and £2.50 at all other times. We also accept ENCTS cards on the same terms as for standard buses and All in 1 cards for £1 fares.

When and where you want to travel

Demand Responsive Transport is not restricted to previous timetables or routes and picks up passengers within 400m of their chosen location to close to their required drop off point when they want to travel.  If your journey can be fulfilled by the bus network the app will direct you to the bus.

The service operates:

6:00 am – 11:00 pm on Monday to Saturday

9:00 am – 6:00 pm on Sunday

The quickest and easiest way to book is using the MK Connect app, available on the Play and Apple stores

It is also possible to book online.

Or by calling 01908 252526 during the hours of operation.

Please note that the line is not available between 9 – 10 am on Wednesdays.

Additional support with registering and queries is available during Council office hours otherwise the phone line will take bookings only.

Payment can be made by;

  • Connecting the app to a credit or debit card
  • Putting in your Milton Keynes concessionary pass number as a payment method to travel free after 9:30 (this has been extended to all day for April). The scheme will be extended to passes from other areas shortly, in the mean time please call the line to book if your concession is from elsewhere.
  • AllinOne Cards will be accepted for a £1 fare
  • The MK Move Card Pay As You Go Purse can be used for on vehicle payment but period passes for discounted travel are not valid on DRT.

Wheelchair accessible vehicles can be booked.
