Bus Service Grants
Covid Bus Service Support Grants
Milton Keynes Council have received Covid Bus service support grants in order to support continuation of services and additional buses to permit social distancing on routes particularly carrying school children. Support has been provided to Arriva, Z&S Transport, Red Rose, Redline Buses, Vale Travel and Stagecoach East. MKC continues to work with operators to ensure safe and adequate provision on routes.
Milton Keynes Council was awarded funding via SEMLEP to provide a retail network for the MK Move smart ticketing scheme. The back-office system improvements are now complete, the 11 large ticket vending machines are in at key interchanges such as central station and 90 posts are going in over March through May to enable collection of on-line top ups.
