Service Changes and Updates



Thursday June 22nd

The RAF are having a 'Freedom March' in Wallingford from 3.30 to 5 p.m. and a number of streets including Wallingford Bridge itself will be closed.  This will affect the 15.40 and 16.40 Wallingford to Goring services; these services will pick up at the Old Police Station, about five minutes walk from the Market Place, at 15.45 and 16.45.  The 16.15 Goring to Wallingford will not be able to run over Wallingford bridge; any passengers for Crowmarsh will be dropped at Crowmarsh Church on request, and the bus will then proceed back via the Wallingford by-pass and Winterbrook to the Old Police Station.


Saturday June 17th

Very sorry that one of the buses developed a little problem this morning and as a result we were unable to run the 09.50, 10.40 and 11.50 Wallingford to Goring and the 10.15 and 11.25 Goring to Wallingford services. Also sorry we were unable to arrange any alternative transport - due to the Carnival it seemed that all the taxis normally in the Market Place had gone into hiding!  Terry, swapping his driver's hat for that of mechanic managed to fix the problem at lunchtime, and we did manage to run the full special two bus service for the rest of the day. If you were affected by any of these cancellations, please contact us by email so we can arrange some suitable compensation.


On Saturday June 17th it's Carnival Day in Wallingford.  The Market Place will be closed to all traffic - and parking will be a nightmare!  But we're planning a service of two buses an hour between Goring and Wallingford to increase capacity on our services, in a circular route using both the 133 and 134 routes.  See the Wallingford Carnival page for more details.


From Saturday June 3rd, the 142 service also runs on Saturdays!  It's a few years now since Whitchurch and Whitchurch Hill had a Saturday service, but we're happy to be running three return journeys from Goring to Caversham and Reading via Basildon House, Beale Park, Pangbourne, Whitchurch, Whitchurch Hill and Crays Pond.  See the 142 timetable page for full details.


From Friday June 2nd, the 133 Fridays only service is changing - there are now three return journeys on the route from Goring to Wallingford via Moulsford, and these all run via The Coombe giving this long road i Streatley a bus service for the first time ever!


This means the additional 134 Fridays only services from Goring to Wallingford via the Stokes at 09.30 and 10.30 are replaced by services starting from South Stoke at 09.00 and 10.30 which will run via Goring and then on the 133 route to Wallingford.  Coming back, the 133 service at 12.15 from Wallingford will continue after Goring station to Cleeve, so you don't need to wait until 13.10 if you want to get back to Cleeve.  For full details, see the 133 timetable page.
