For up to 1,700 staff at Tilbrook business estate, running to Kingston retail centre.
A new lunchtime shuttle bus service will be launched on Monday 28 April 2014 to enable up to 1,700 staff at the Tilbrook business estate in Milton Keynes to travel to the nearby Kingston retail centre. The new service is an initiative of the Tilbrook Travel Hub and will provide an easy and sustainable travel option for staff to reduce car use during the day.
Travel on service 51 will cost £2 return, will run between 12 noon and 2pm every 20 minutes, and is being run by bus company Z&S Transport. The Tilbrook scheme is co-ordinated by sustainable travel specialist, Go Travel Solutions as part of its Smartgo Milton Keynes initiative and is supported by a number of local businesses on the Tilbrook estate including Red Bull Technology, Trek UK, T-Systems, PPSGB, Kingston Foods and Sansetsu.
The Tilbrook Travel Hub has been developed following an estate-wide travel survey of the 22 businesses based at Tilbrook, initiated by Red Bull Technology and organised by Go Travel Solutions. The travel hub is working on a range of other initiatives including helping staff to reduce the need to commute by car and as single drivers. These include encouraging car sharing and developing a bike buddy scheme.
