Where will the Busway go?
The Busway will travel between Luton, Dunstable and Houghton Regis in both directions.
Map of route below, click on image to enlarge.
The main part of the Busway network will be the specially constructed guideway from Houghton Regis to Dunstable and Luton town centres and then will travel on roads to London Luton Airport, via Luton Airport Parkway Station.
Once the first phase of the Busway is up and running, we will carefully monitor the service to ensure that it meets the travel needs of local people. We will then consider other services.
Whilst an extension of the guideway to Leighton Buzzard is unlikely because some sections of the old railway line which ran on from Dunstable to Leighton Buzzard have been built over, existing express bus services to Leighton Buzzard and Milton Keynes will be able to use the Busway within Luton and Dunstable.
Much of the ability to deliver the new growth area (43,000 new houses and 26,000 new jobs) is based on the provision of the Busway. Major developments proposed as part of the emerging Core Strategy for the Luton and South Bedfordshire Growth Area can be served by public transport through potential extensions to the Busway infrastructure.
