Green Line timetable & fares change

We have now been running Green Line 702 since December 2017 following First’s withdrawal. In that time we have learned an immense amount.

As we now have better understanding of customer numbers and usage, we are now able to offer our first improvements to the service's timetable from Tuesday 8 May

To coincide with this timetable and route change, some fares will be changing - including offering larger discounts when purchasing tickets on the Green Line 702 mobile app. 

timetable change Tuesday 8 May

For the full, combined, Green Line 702 and 703 leaflet showing timetables, maps and fare information, click here.  

Green Line 702 - Windsor to London only

Green Line 702 will now run between Windsor (LEGOLAND Windsor Resort®) and London Victoria only. There will still be the three early morning and evening ‘peak time’ commuter journeys which will continue to start in Reading and run through Bracknell. There will also be a 9.30am trip from Bracknell which is perfect for concessionary pass holders from other local authorities - Bracknell Forest concessionary pass holders can, of course, travel at any time!

new route Green Line 703 for Bracknell, North Ascot and Heathrow

The good news for the people of Bracknell is that they will now have the brand new Green Line 703 to replace the 702. This new route will run hourly to LEGOLAND Windsor Resort®, Windsor, Slough and Langley. It will also provide a new fast and direct link to Heathrow Terminal 5 (where you can take advantage of free onward bus/rail connections to other terminals).

North Ascot and Winkfield will, however, be served every two hours by this new service due to low usage. Alternate journeys will operate fast along the main road.
