Demand Responsive Transport (DRT)

Milton Keynes Council have partnered with ViaVan on MK Connect, a new demand-responsive transport service covering the area previously served by bus route 28. Using a mobile app or a phone booking line, residents can book a journey in seconds and MK Connect technology will match passengers heading in the same direction. Think of it as a bus that’s smart enough to come when you want it, where you want it!

The service begins 25 October and will run 7.00am – 7.00pm Mon-Sat and 11.00am – 4.00pm on Sundays. All single trips cost £2.50 and are free for Older Person’s and Disabled Person’s bus pass holders after 9:30am.

Wheelchair-accessible vehicles may not be available immediately, but are being sourced and mobilised rapidly to ensure access for all residents. If not bookable by 25 October, ViaVan will provide alternative transport for mobility restricted riders.

For live support or help with creating an account on your smartphone, call 01908 410305. If you’re a bus pass holder without a smartphone, call 01908 252526 (to book rides, lines are open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday: 9.00am-5:15pm, Wednesday: 10am-5:15pm).

More information about the service can be found at ViaVan.

This replacement has been mobilised quickly and some additional features will be coming shortly.  We apologise for any short-term inconvenience.
