We have teamed up with the operators of the RailAir link to Heathrow to make travel from any bus stop that we serve in Reading to Heathrow terminals both easier and cheaper – with an exciting and new ticket so you can use our buses and connect with RailAir coaches to take you all the way to Heathrow!
From Friday 1 March 2013, you will be able to buy a special through ticket on any of our buses in the simplyReading area and use this ticket on the coach from Central Reading to get to Heathrow!
The tickets give you an overall saving of up to 20% against the on-the-day fare of both services! This includes the already generous RailAir online price reduction.
You can now get a single, day return or period return ticket (return journey is valid for up to 3 months after purchase - outward journey must take place on day of purchase) from your home stop to take you all the way to Heathrow!
Simply ask the driver for an adult or child 'RailAir single', 'RailAir Day Return' or 'RailAir 3-Month Return'.
|Single||Day return||Period return|
As this scheme works in conjunction with the RailAir terms and conditions of use, to buy the child ticket, customers must be under 16 and may be asked to provide valid ID on the coach - although it’s quite likely that you will have your passports with you if you are travelling to Heathrow!
If you have a Young Person's Railcard, you can save even more money - simply buy a Solo ticket as normal on our buses and then use your Railcard to get the reduced fare on the RailAir coach - or better still, buy a ticket online in advance and save even more money!
We wanted to work with our colleagues at First railair.com to help to increase awareness of the fastest and simplest route from Reading to Heathrow Airport - and give our customers that little something extra as well.
RailAir coaches leave Reading Station up to every 20 minutes and reach Heathrow (Terminal 5) in as little as 38 minutes. The coaches are extremely comfortable and offer users free WiFi to help pass the time on their journey.
