Transport to St Paul's

A number of public service routes run along the grid roads close to St Paul's.  These serve most of the areas to the south, north and east of Milton Keynes.  You can find a map here. Pupils can purchase an All In 1 MK Card, a scheme for transport for young people in Milton Keynes, and application forms are available from the School office.  From 1st September 2017, Milton Keynes Council has advised that there will be a £5 charge to purchase the All in 1 MK card (this charge also applies to children who are renewing their cards at 12 and 16). 

There are nine dedicated school bus routes that bring pupils to the school car park in the morning and leave from there each evening.  Please click on the right of this page for timetables. These routes are organised by Milton Keynes Council and serve all areas of the city.  For more information on the All in 1 MK card click here. Through purchasing tickets on the bus with a valid All in 1 MK card bus users can make some excellent savings.  For example a weekly pass costs £8.50 (saving £1.50) and a four weekly pass costs £27.00 (a saving of £13.00).  You can see a poster with more information here

The school organises a school coach that serves Buckingham, Winslow and many of the villages between Buckingham and Milton Keynes.  Details of the route can be found on the right of the page.

We run two buses which leave St Paul's at 4.15pm on a Monday evening to accommodate those pupils who stay for Extended Curriculum and other after school activities.  One travels north and the other travels south and they will stop at any public service bus stop when requested.  See timetables on the right of the page.

Important Messages from Z & S Buses:

33/33A buses (diversions due to roadworks):

We have been informed by Milton Keynes Council and Z & S buses that there are a number of impending road closures between Castlethorpe and Haversham which will affect the 33/33A bus services.

Today, Thursday 12th October, Devils Dip (the junction linking Haversham to Castlethorpe) will be closed between 9.30am and 4.30pm. The 33 and 33a buses will not be serving between Hanslope and Long Street this afternoon. Z & S suggest that children get off the bus at The Square as the bus will go on a diversionary route to Hartwell.

This road will will be fully closed from Monday 16 October for two weeks. According to Milton Keynes Council's website, services 33 and 33A will divert via Cosgrove and Station Road, Castlethorpe. Journeys will not serve stops between Wolverton Church Street and temporary stops in Station Road.

From Thursday 19th October the Hanslope to Hartwell Road will be closed at Long Street for one week and services 33 and 33A will divert via Tahall End and Stoke Goldington, and will not serve stops between Hanslope Market Square and Hartwell, Salcey Avenue.

Z & S will be putting further information up in the buses. For up to date information please check Milton Keynes Council's website here .

Routes 607/609

The 607 bus service is getting very busy in the morning.  To make sure all our students can get on the buses can we please ask students who live in  Bradville and Oakridge Park to try and use the 7.45am 609 service from Bradville, Marlborough Roundabout to St Paul's. This will allow the spread of passengers between the 607 and 609 services and will help to ease congestion. 

All In 1 MK Cards 

If your child travels to school by bus they must show a valid All In 1 MK Card to the driver to get concessionary fares.  Bus companies strictly enforce this rule so it is very important that your child has their card when they travel. 

If you are applying for a card for the first time you can get your application form from School reception.  Please note that from 1st September Milton Keynes Council has introduced a £5 fee for the card.  

If your child loses or damages their card they must contact Milton Keynes Council on 01908 252558 to get it replaced.  There is a charge of £10 for replacement cards and the Council will advise you what you should do until your replacement arrives.

Free Home to School Transport

In certain circumstances Milton Keynes Council has a duty to provide free home to school transport.  To find out if you are eligible please download their leaflet here.  You can also visit their website, call them on 01908 252526, or email them here
