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.  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.  Milton Keynes Council charges £5 to purchase the All in 1 MK card (this fee also applies to children who are renewing their cards at 12 and 16). 

There are eight 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.  A weekly pass costs £9.00, a four weekly pass costs £30 and a single journey costs £1.10. A day return ticket is available at £2.  

Important Messages About Buses:

The MK Connect service covers all of Milton Keynes. MK Connect is a bookable shared ride service. All in 1 MK cards are valid on the service for a £1 single journey fare.  For information about the MK Connect service see or email or call 01908 252526. 

Safety on buses/Year Group bus zones

Z & S are sending larger capacity buses for some routes. Where these are not available and the bus becomes full, it will return to site for a second trip. This will inevitably take longer for children to get home but safety is paramount. Children will need to sit in their year group bubbles and follow all safety procedures such as hand sanitising etc. There will be no standing on any of the buses. Please remind your children that face coverings will be required when travelling by bus or taxi. You can see a map of single deck bus zones here and double deck bus zones here

City special bus

Z & S provide a City Special bus for the afternoon journey home. The bus travels between St Paul's and MK City Centre. If your child only needs to get as far as the City Centre this is the best bus for them to get.

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 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.
