finding your bus

Cranfield Connect route diagramCranfield Connect buses
We run frequent buses from Cranfield to Bedford and Milton Keynes - our online journey planner gives you the best option, or look at our network map to see more detail of where our buses go.

getting on
Raise your arm when you see the bus approaching, so the driver knows you want to get on - and have your Cranfield University id pass ready to show the driver if you're travelling with a discounted ticket. If it's dark, why not use the light from your phone to make sure the driver sees you?

At the moment, everyone who travels on public transport needs to wear a face covering - have yours ready before you get on, and keep it on for your whole journey.

scan your M-ticket, or pay on-board
When you get on, have your M-ticket ready to scan on the ticket machine. Or, if you're buying your ticket on the bus we accept contactless payment for any ticket up to £45, and there's no minimum spend. If you’re paying with cash, you'll need the exact money please - we can't give change at the moment.
