    The M4 is a road.... You need a taxed and insured vehicle to use it as your not allowed to walk or cycle on a motorway. Costs vary depending on car/van/lorry/motorbike etc... Plus fuel.

    If you want to take a train www.nationalrail.co.uk will sort you out

    Just looked on google maps to find out where biggleswade is and its nowhere near the M4, neither is bedford!

    lol... Just thought it might be a bus.... And it appears to be stagecoach run, who never seem to give prices online!

    Call them?
    Telephone:

    01604 676060 (8am - 5.30pm Mon-Fri) outside these times call Traveline on 0871 2002233*

    Hi,

    It is a bus. Sorry should have been more specific.

    I have called travel line before but they said they don't give out fare information. I know the times and when it gets to Bedford but I need to know the fares as well. I'm asking on behalf of someone who needs it for tomorrow. I should have checked earlier but things have been really hectic.

    Thanks for trying though.

    The only way to find out is to phone the bus company - who are probably closed for the night now.

    It is very rare for bus fares to be published online.

    So unless there's someone here who knows or uses that service, you are not going to be able to find out.

    I'd guess less than a fiver each way.

    I know but they asked me tonight and the company is closed now. I can't call tomorrow as I'll be out before 8 all day. I just wanted to try and help them prepare. That's why I sent this message in the hopes someone from that area might know - it's worth a shot. I have been able to get fares for stagecoach but it's on more popular journeys. It's worth asking questions even if I do look stupid, you never know.

    Well what's it from Sandy to Bedford then? Biggleswade will only be marginally more.

    OP the maximum it will cost (for a day return) is £9.50 using a dayrider gold ticket. The driver sells them

    I think that you can get cheaper if you buy a monthly - ask

    Green.Lander, do you know the fare from Biggleswade (or Sandy) to Bedford or not?

    Your idea of 'expensive' may be different to other peoples'. It would be good to have figures.
    Just because I've written it doesn't mean that
    either you or I have to believe it.
