M34 is the Megabus direct line from London to Bradford, however, Megabus offers also other way of travel between the two cities - Megabusplus is a coach and train combination with coaches operating feeder services from locations in Yorkshire and East Midlands Parkway railway station where passengers transfer to an East Midlands Trains service to/from London St Pancras. Unlike Megatrain, this service is available daily. When engineering works disrupt rail services between London and East Midlands Parkway, the service is run using direct coaches from London Victoria.
Most of the services from Bradford to London begin their journey at one of the UKs’ northern cities or towns, however, all terminate at Victoria Coach Station in London (see details below).
National Express & Megabus’ coaches are high-class vehicles, equipped with toilet, air conditioning, reclining seats and radio. Both carriers put the safety and comfort of passengers first, so the vehicles are equipped with a large number of safeguards. The operators are using modern vehicles with large panoramic windows and increased legroom. Some coaches on this route provide free Wi-Fi and can take passengers in wheelchairs on board the bus.
Travelling between London and Bradford with National Express takes about 5 hours, 4.5 hours with Megabus and Megabusplus. This is one of the cheapest transport options between Central London and Bradford.
