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 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.

Important Messages About Buses:

No free Monday late bus 

Please note that there is no free late bus on a Monday evening.  Pupils wishing to stay later for homework and enrichment clubs can use the local regular public service to get home.  We are redirecting the financial resources to benefit a greater number of our pupils.

Delays to Route 33

Due to a number of roadworks in the Hanslope, Castlethorpe and Wolverton area the number 33 bus is experiencing delays. You can find live information about roadworks on Milton Keynes Council's website here.

Routes 607/609

The 607 bus service can be 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. 

The 609 bus in the afternoon is a double decker service.  If your child usually goes to Bradville Roundabout/last stop near Stantonbury (Spencer) on the 607 can we please suggest that they board the 609 afternoon service in the future as this will help to further ease congestion on these routes.

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.
