Short answer: no, there doesn't appear to be a faster route. The main bus route from Milton Keynes to Cambridge is the X5 followed by the 905, operated by Stagecoach. Until recently this was a single bus route, the X5, but it seems this no longer runs the full route. Google Maps puts this journey at around 2h30, including a 30-minute connection in Bedford. ...

There used to be a direct bus on this route, the X5 (Oxford - Bicester - Milton Keynes - Bedford - Cambridge), but it was apparently withdrawn in August 2020. I haven't travelled this in quite a while, but I used to take the X5 a lot when I was younger. The replacement route seems to be Milton Keynes to Bedford on the X5 (about 25m), and then the 905 from ...

Have you considered a taxi? I'm not sure if that would be considered Public Transport, but there is at least one MK based company offering a connection 'from 75 GBP'. This seems comparable to a full-priced, off-peak day single, which is 73.82 GBP according to Trainline. If multiple people are travelling, a taxi may actually be the cheaper option. As a public ...

you can pick up the card at the tourist information booth. "You can also use your card to travel from Barcelona Airport. You can buy or pick up your card at the tourist information offices at the two terminals."

It seems that the answer to the question in the title is no. (To address the concern at the end of the question, I haven't had problems with using contactless credit cards on buses.)

In addition to the taxi suggestion, depending on how long you're planning to spend in Cambridge, you may be better off actually hiring a car. If you book in advance and spend some time searching, and don't need a large car, you may be able to get a car for under £40 a day. Even adding the cost of petrol, if you're going for a day, i.e. returning the within ...

If you take the route Google suggested at the moment (involving only funicular from Vallvidrera Inferior to Superior, then taking 111), you can use the Hola Barcelona Card. The Hola Barcelona card includes public transport within Zone 1 (https://doc.atm.cat/ca/xarxa_ferrov_global.pdf), in which Tibidabo stop is situated. Note though the Vallvidrera Funicular ...

It seems I found the information that answers my question at least partially (see below). It might change when the shuttle starts operating (June 19, 2021), but then I hope it will be updated on the website where I took this information from. Service is currently operated every 10-20 minutes on weekends and holidays only. Service to Muir Woods from Pohono ...

The Stagecoach Dayrider (now £4.50) covers all Stagecoach services in the city area (see map). This includes all the Busway, Park & Ride, and Citi services. One exception is the U, which is operated by Whippet instead. Most routes are likely to pass through the city centre, which is densely packed with bus stops along and around Drummer Street, Emmanuel ...
