Service Changes from 1st February 2022
We've changed the timings of some of the afternoon services. The former 12.40 Goring to Reading will leave at 13.20. The former 13.21 Reading to Goring will leave Blagrave Street at 14.51 (starting from Tesco at 14.47) and will run via Whitchurch Hill, Whitchurch, Pangbourne, Beale & Basildon Parks and Streatley. This gives new journey opportunities for Lower Basildon, Whitchurch and Whitchurch Hill residents to pop into Reading or Caversham. Also a quick lunchtime hop into Pangbourne is now possible for Whitchurch Hill residents.
Special Note: It has come to our attention that if you do an internet search for the 142, you may be directed to an old (2013) Thames Travel timetable. Unfortunately Thames Travel tell us they are not able to remove it - apparently it will be there for eternity! Please ignore it, the correct timetable is shown below. Sorry for any confusion but the worldwideweb is outside of our control (or anyone elses according to Thames Travel!!)
What's the route in Caversham Heights?
The 146 follows the yellow highlighted route from Caversham Library northwards... you can board or alight at any bus stop but please do give a clear hand signal to the driver if you wish to board, and let them know in good time if you want to get off. AND it's only £2 adult single for any journey between Shepherd's Lane (the Oxfordshire boundary) and Blagrave Street/Tesco King's Meadow no matter how long or short!
Printed copies of the new timetables (as above) are now available - currently on the buses, and also at Goring Library, the Community Centre, and Goring Railway Station (while stocks last!).
Bus Links between Reading Town Centre, Caversham and Tesco King's Meadow
We are sorry to advise that Reading Borough Council has withdrawn funding for Reading Buses' service 28 so this service was discontinued on July 28th 2018.
The free bus that operated to and from Tesco on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays ceased operating from March 19th 2019. The only buses serving the site now are Going Forward Buses.
