Busway cuts Milton Keynes trip time

Busway cuts Milton Keynes trip time Busway cuts Milton Keynes trip time
Arriva is using the Luton-Dunstable busway for a new faster link between Luton and Milton Keynes. The new F70 service typically takes 67 minutes from end to end, 30 minutes faster than the standard stopping service. Both services run hourly.

Half of the time saving comes on the busway, with the journey time between Luton and Dunstable being cut from 30 minutes to 16 minutes. The rest of the saving comes through bypassing places served by the standard service.

Arriva regional publicity manager Richard Lewis says: “We are pleased to enhance our services between Luton and Milton Keynes by taking advantage of the busway to give a much quicker journey in to and out of Luton on the new F70.

“Since the busway opened, the advantages of having a clear run, free of traffic delays, have been welcomed by our customers travelling between Luton and Dunstable and it is good news that we are able to extend its benefits to even more people.”
