Demand Responsive Transport begins in Milton Keynes on 1st April

This new ‘MK Connect’ service is replacing many of the routes that the Council currently pays for and will be provided by Via.

More information on which routes are impacted can be found at https://www.getsmartertravelmk.org/on-board/demand-responsive-transport - further information will be posted here soon.

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 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.

A full range of marketing information on the service and how to use it will be rolled out in March.
