    Usually long queues. Go to the machine if possible. Much quicker. Go to the Pumpkin cafe for delicious coffee. Get the 'Bite' card if you travel a lot for discounts in lots of shops at the stations.

    Fast London service from platform 4 usually. Although rarely there are platform alternation. Travelling to south London the Clapham j hourly service might be quicker than the fast service to Euston.

    If you're traveling in early, remember that the surrounding car parking won't let you pay at the machine until 8.30am. And don't just sit in a parking space as the traffic wardens are always prowling!

    If waiting for a train to London Euston and the train that stops fires out loads of steam from the engine and makes a whistling sound, you've probably gone back in time and should try to fix that.

    Staff will take default position of suspicion if you try to buy ticket to change routes without exiting the station. And rightly so, as everyone knows, only criminals take the train, eg Ronnie Briggs.

    Some of the London Midland staff here will find any excuse to talk down to you and make you out to be a criminal if you make even the slightest mistake with an invalid ticket. Appalling.

    Wheelchair user @MKCentral? 1) Rounded taxi drop off = no way to pull up to kerb; 2) The only dropped kerb is on approach & it's not marked = ppl park on it. 3) Brittle/narrow taxi ramps= dangerous.

    if you're travelling frequently and dont want to wait in ridiculous queues in the morning buy your ticket for the next day the night before. 20 extra minutes in bed? thanks!

    Milton keynes black cabs are too expensive on the rank about £1.60 per mile.Call 01908 263263 i recomend them much cheaper than the black cabs here when i have used them.

    bus stops have now been moved about 100metres from the main door on the next road up, giving a calmer atmosphere at the exit. this is part of an improvement scheme

    Most of the platforms don't have seating, so use a coat or similar on the metal/rubber barriers to give your legs a rest whilst you're waiting for a train.

    Access to the station is still extremely difficult as excess funds are still being spend on fixing the square which needed no fixing.

    Be aware that the station (misleadingly) isn't in the centre of MK. It's a good 10-20 minute walk to the main shopping area

    Black cab taxis here are extorteinantly expensive here call a private hire with Lord Clive 'much cheaper" number on car in pic

    Loads of disabled parking at front of station filled up with drop off and pick ups leaving their cars there. Wrong.

    Nothing outstanding about the station. Costa coffee is a good spot for meetings. Else quiet sparse.

    Dont bother with black cabs here TO EXPENSIVE £2.40p per mile call a cab on 01908 263263 just £1.60 per mile

    Don't moan it's clean and safe and the roundabouts mean that if a cat farts or there is a major pile up you can get from one place to another!

    When you arrive here at 2 in the morning having been asleep when the train was at Tring, try using one of the many taxi's outside to help you get home.

    Get here early in the mornings to get your ticket as there is always queues.

    You can get a Virgin Trains only Travelcard for £19.50 from the counter. They're not available from the machines.

    They're not kidding when they tell you to stand behind the yellow line - passing trains run at top speed past the platforms!

    Call cybercabz taxis who are the best on 01908 263263 for the station they are "tight"

    Park in the 30p per hour zones if you're just on a day trip. Much cheaper.
  • Chris P.
    Chris PilsworthNovember 23, 2012
    Parking in the network rail multi-story is only 30p per hour rather than £8 per day outside the station

    Stop moaning on here about MK station. You can buy a ticket and get on a train. What more do you want? FFS.

    Buy a coffee from the stall next to the cafe - £1.85, piping hot and absolutely gorgeous!

    Area around the station is being improved - meaning it is largely inaccessible

    Interestingly the largest area in Milton Keynes not accessible via a roundabout.

    Be weary of any Virgin train to London Euston only - ALWAYS at least 5-10 minutes late!!
