Timetable changes

As you may have seen previously, we will be changing some timetables from Monday 24 April. For the most part, these are small tweaks to the timetables to help improve the performance of buses or to better reflect demand at certain times of the day. Most people should see little or no change, as we seek to try and keep our network consistent.

Below is a handy table that outlines what is changing on each route so you know what to look out for. If your service isn't listed, then it isn't changing!

Please note, from the same date, we will also stop selling our simplyReading, simplyWokingham & Bracknell and simplyNetwork paper 7 day tickets on bus. Click here for more information on this

minor changes on greenwave

From 24th April the Monday to Friday greenwave bus leaving St Marys Butts on at 3.59pm and Station Road at 4.02pm will run as route 53 and no longer serve Kennet Island. This is to avoid the effects of traffic congestion which have led to serious delays to this bus. Alternative route 50a buses to Kennet Island depart Station Road at 3.52pm and 4.12pm.

other changes - school buses LH1 and 991 and service 7 minor route change 

There will also be minor tweaks for the Little Heath School service LH1 which can be found here.
School bus 991 will also see some very minor changes here
If you use service 7 (Reading to Riseley) there will also be a very minor route change towards Reading - this service will now use Kendrick Road instead of Southampton Street to mirror its parent service operated by Stagecoach.
