New route to Thames Valley Science Park

UPDATED 27 October 2017

It has come to our notice that the Thames Valley Science Park will not now be open until January 2018.

Until then, leopard 10a will operate between Central Reading and Ducketts Farm only. Buses will depart Ducketts Farm for Reading two minutes after the Thames Valley Science Park times.

Updates will appear here when known.

We are launching a new service running between Reading and the brand new Thames Valley Science Park, Shinfield Campus from Monday 30 October. 

The route will initially be launched as part of the leopard - numbered 10a. 

Buses will follow the normal leopard route via the Royal Berkshire Hospital and down Shinfield Road until the Ducketts Farm stops where they will then run into the newly built Science Park. 

Buses will run Monday to Saturday every half hour. For the new timetable, click here

From Reading to Ducketts Farm (simplyReading zone) the fares of the new service will be the same as the leopard. Thames Valley Science Park fare zone is the same as the current leopard fare at the Black Boy (in the simplyNetwork area).
