All the information you need to know to go to see the Royals in another exciting Championship campaign. We've got a few things to tell you including some ways that you could save money this year against last year!
There are slight changes to the F30, F32 and F33 routes near to the stadium - after leaving the Longbarn Lane stop, buses will now turn onto the A33 via Rose Kiln Lane & head straight to the ground - on the way back, they will use Kennet Island to get back onto Basingstoke Road and normal route.
The F31 route has been extended and will now start from the Winnersh Triangle Station, this means the route starts out of the Reading yellow zone and it is not a park & ride service.
We are delighted to announce that we have frozen the football fares for a 4th year running. And even more exciting for a lot of you is that we have changed our 'yellow' and 'blue' zones to become 'Reading' and Network' - with the ‘Reading fare zone’ becoming bigger so lots of you will pay less than last year!
This means cheaper fares for: F21, F22, F23, F24, F31, F32, F33.
We also have a new 'Park and Ride zone' with their own dedicated fares, meaning you can get an adult return for just £3.50 on the F2! Park and Rides routes are the only routes to have a 4 person football group ticket too at the great value of just £7.
Early in the season we’ll be bringing in football match day smartcards! These football smartcards will give you unlimited all day travel on a match day in either the Reading zone, Network Zone or on the shuttle. You can buy days in bulk to save you money and the smartcards will speed up the process of getting on the bus as you won’t need the exact change!
