New match day travel to the MKDons home games 2017-2018

Saturday, August 5th, 2017

MK Dons and Arriva will be running a bus service for supporters during the 2017/18 season, starting with the season opener against Wigan Athletic.
The service will provide fans in Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas with an easy and affordable way to travel to and from Stadium MK on a matchday.
There will be two routes running, which will include pick-ups in Aylesbury, Leighton Buzzard, Wing and Buckingham, as well as three stops in Central Milton Keynes.

MK Dons Executive Director Andrew Cullen said: “The previous service was well received by supporters and therefore we are delighted to re-introduce it for the 2017/18 season.
“What’s more, we are now able to extend the service to our loyal supporters – and potential new Dons – in Aylesbury, Leighton Buzzard, Wing and Buckingham, as well as, of course, those in Milton Keynes.
“It’s hoped that this service will allow supporters to travel to and from Stadium MK in an easy and affordable way, which will only enhance their matchday experience.”
He added: “We’d like to thank Arriva for their help and support in ensuring this service can go ahead – we look forward to working with them.”
Maq Alibhai, Area Managing Director South, at Arriva Midlands, said: "At Arriva Midlands we are dedicated to getting people where they want to be and we are delighted to be working with MK Dons to provide this bus service to and from Stadium MK for supporters across the region.
"We wish MK Dons the very best of luck for the 2017/18 season and are thrilled that we will be sharing this journey with the fans."
