The service on this route has changed - from Monday 9th April 2018, we will be running one journey each way on Mondays to Saturdays to give a fast service from Reading direct to Beale Park and Basildon Park. The Sunday & Public Holidays service will not run after 8th April but it will resume on Sunday 27th May until Sunday 28th October 2018 with three return journeys including extensions to Cleeve at one end and Tesco King's Meadow at the other. For full details please see our 'Timetables from April 9th 2018' page.
If coming by train, you can join the bus at Goring, Pangbourne or Tilehurst railway stations - and the stop in Blagrave Street is just across the road from Reading station (rail air exit). Buses will also pick up (and set down) at stops outside the Broad Street Mall. All stops are on request - please give a clear hand signal to the driver if you wish to board, or tell them in good time if you wish to alight.
This is the only bus service operating along the route on Sundays; hop on at Pangbourne or Purley and pop into Reading. In the Reading BC area, there's a special offer - adult single just £1.50 no matter how long or short the journey. See fares table below for details of all the fares on the service.
