The Busway is a fast, frequent and reliable high-quality service linking Houghton Regis, Dunstable and Luton, that opened 6 months late, in September 2013.
The majority of the Busway network is a special guideway between Blackburn Road, on the edge of Houghton Regis, through Dunstable and into a new Luton Interchange by the railway station. Official website: http://www.busway.net/
Journey times between Dunstable and Luton have been cut from 30 minutes to 15 minutes.
