    Does anyone know if the bus transport from Stafford station is still running this year?

    I'm looking to book up a trip soon, but I would need the bus as I don't drive. Also, do I need to buy bus tickets in advance, or can i pay on the day?

    Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Yes it still runs, Mon-Sat. It’s the X41 you want and you can see the timetable and prices here. You buy tickets on the bus, no need to prebook.

    Brilliant. Thank you very much for the info.

    Looks like I'll be getting my ticket today then.

    The bus itself works fine. Just is annoying how it arrives to the park 40 minutes late so by the time you arrive, most rides already have long queues.

    Have you used the service?

    I did notice that it doesn't get there until around 10.40am.

    I used it a few weeks ago. It drops you off directly by the entrance of the park so at least you don't need to do the long walk or the monorail, but it arrives a lot later than the park's opening time.

    Does it pick you up from the same spot it drops you off?
