The shuttle bus service for employees working in the city centre has been temporarily suspended due to the 'pingdemic'.
MyMiltonKeynes offers a free bus service, called MyBus, for people that work within the Business Improvement District (BID).
It usually picks up employees and drops them off at their workplace or elsewhere in the centre, giving them extra flexibility and ease of travel.
But just like other sectors across the city, the MyBus service has been impacted by the 'pingdemic' as their employees have been told to self-isolate.
The free shuttle has been suspended this week and is expected to continue as normal next Monday (16/8).
A spokesperson for MyMiltonKeynes said: "Our free MyBus shuttle service, exclusively for the employees of BID businesses has been suspended this week due to 'track and trace' requirements.
"We'll be using this week to carry out maintenance on the buses and will restart our regular service on Monday 16th August."
