The first passengers boarded today (Monday) as the service provided by MyMiltonKeynes Business Improvement District began its route around the city centre.
The service will run Monday-Friday, 8am-6pm, on a circular route via Silbury and Avebury Boulevards. There ared ten stops across the city centre, from the Network Rail offices by the station up to the shopping centres and leisure districts.
Stops include at the Civic Offices, The Hub, 12th Street, centre:mk and intu Milton Keynes.
The BID has launched the service in response to feedback from employers and city centre employees. MyMiltonKeynes chief executive Melanie Beck said: “We are thrilled to finally launch the My Bus service.
“This tangible benefit for CMK employees will allow them to leave their cars parked up, jump on the free shuttle buses to head to a meeting elsewhere in CMK or just to pop up to the restaurant or shopping areas in their lunch break.
“It gives full transport flexibility to employees within the city centre.”
Employees located within the city centre can download the free MyMiltonKeynes app (on iOS and Android) to register, ride for free and access live bus times.
