We've made a few further changes to the new schedules since they were originally posted here: please check the latest version below, which could still be subject to further change pending the approval of the Traffic Commissioner.
Below are the draft timetables we are planning to run from April 9th. Please note that there may be late changes before the service starts, so do check again before travelling. Also, these changes are subject to the approval of the Traffic Commissioner.
Service 133: We were expecting to have to suspend this service completely, but we have been offered a way to run two return journeys on Fridays only from April 9th 2018 until further notice. Details below:
Service 134: Minor timing changes and the 134X services will be revised. A new Sunday service through Cleeve to Goring station and village will run on Sundays and Public Holidays from 27th May 2018; these buses will continue to Basildon Park, Beale Park, Pangbourne, Purley and Reading (service 144).
Service 137 - we were expecting to have to suspend this service completely, but we have been offered a way to run two return journeys on Fridays until further notice. Details below:
Service 138 - we are pleased to be able to continue running this service but on Tuesdays only. The route will be extended to run round Berinsfield village on a trial basis.
Services 142 and 144 - one journey each way via Whitchurch Hill will be diverted to run via Purley instead, and most journeys will be retimed to give a better service from Reading to and from Beale and Basildon Parks. The Sunday service on route 144 will not run after Sunday 8th April until Sunday 27th May, and from that date will run through the summer until 28th October, consisting of three return journeys which will also serve Cleeve (service 134B)
