About us

You may be familiar with our brightly coloured buses, but you may not be aware of our history and our success story.

We’re proud to have been transporting customers in and around Reading for over 100 years. Yes, there’s a lot of history but we’re really focused on giving you a great bus service with low-floor buses and frequent services. Along with our owners, Reading Borough Council, we’re trying to reduce car dependency for access to the area, both for visitors and residents.

Since 2005, Reading Buses has invested millions in over 100 new fully-accessible, ultra-low emission buses for our Premier Routes.All our Premier Routes have been given a complete makeover, with some of the benefits including higher frequency bus services and low emission buses, so if you haven’t done so already, come on board and get a better, greener view of Reading. Currently 38% of our fleet is very environmentally friendly - with 31 electric hybrid buses, 20 gas buses and a further 14 due for delivery next Spring!


The sides of our buses are seen by millions every year and are a great way for advertisers to get their brands known.

If you are interested in advertising on one of our buses, please contact David Read from Exterion Media.
