A search for EasyBus in these forums will bring up several threads. Most are filled with people complaining about buses not turning up, not being able to board, rude drivers, no room for luggage etc.
I personally would not use this company. Go by train or use the National Express coach.
wow.. thanks for the tip
so I guess it is easy to book directly from there rather than pre-buy tickets?
Yes you don't need to pre-book any transport from Luton Airport.
The Airport has an "Onward Travel Centre" with desks for both National Express coaches and First Capital Connect trains.
Here are the websites if you want more information:
thanks.. much appreciated
Just to echo the other posts, you would be crazy to use this bunch of jokers. Many many posts on buses not turning up at all or being too crowded to get on when they do, people missing flights or paying big money for last minute taxis.
Kudos for asking, stay well away.
From the airport , just outside the main door is the shuttle bus for Luton Parkway train station. I think it costs about £4. Then the train will take you to central London in about 45 minutes. The main London station with good onward transport links that most use is St Pancras which is linked to Kings Cross station ( one big complex really ) that has lots of tube lines going to other London locations. Or buses just outside.
Have a look at the TFL ( Transport for London) website for tube maps and journey planner.
I think the bus is £1.60. However buy your train ticket in the terminal and it will be from 'Luton Airport' which includes the cost of the shuttle bus. Note tickets to/from 'Luton Airport Parkway' do not!
We have booked our hotel near East India Tube station (close to O2 Arena) so I will need to go there from Luton..
Checked for a close-by coach trip using national express but it was very expensive!
I guess the best is to go via St. Pancras or Baker Street..
or am I missing something?
National Express don't serve East India Dock so if you've tried the journey with them heaven knows what you've come up with.
You can get them into London at a reasonable price and continue by tube.
If you take the bus to Kings Cross / St Pancras ( one big complex with two stations side by side ) then take the Northern line from Kings Cross on the tube to Bank and change there to the DLR Docklands Light Railway to East India Dock.
