Schools

We have always been dedicated to ensuring that we will try our best to get people from where they are  to where they want to go! School travel is no different and we aim to transport school pupils in comfort and safety, at an affordable price, and we welcome them on all of our bus services.

Which schools do we serve?

Our silverstars buses serve five main schools across the Reading area; Bulmershe, Chiltern Edge, Denefield, Little Heath and Theale Green. 

Other schools are served by our ordinary bus services, and we run extra journeys and extend services via schools as required to accommodate pupil travel requirements. If your child attends a different school to those listed above, please consult our network map to see which services run to their school. Alternatively, you can contact our friendly customer services team who will be happy to help you.

Changes from January 2018

We changed some timetables for buses that run to schools from 2 January. There have been some tweaks to help ensure that school children have better timed buses to/from school. 

jet black 1S - The morning journey has been tweaked to improve reliability - click here for timetable.
18S - Slight amendments to the afternoon journey - click here for timetable.
sky blue 15T - The morning journey will now run as a normal 15 on non-schooldays, with the 15T at 3.05pm from Theale Green being revised to start at 3.10pm - click here for timetable.
yellow 26L/26T - The 26T and 26L will both start earlier from Reading Station with revised times throughout to ensure better arrival times at schools. These journeys will no longer go to IKEA in either direction.
The morning 26L will operate via a revised route towards Little Heath via Chapel Hill and Little Heath Road instead of City Road to avoid car park congestion. The afternoon journey will continue to run via City Road. (Both 26L and 26T will serve Sainsbury's but not IKEA) - click here for timetable.

For further information, and full timetables for all buses that run to each school, please follow the links below. These incorporate a map of the bus services serving each school and also information on bus fares and how to book. If you're not sure which bus service your child needs to use, there's a handy postcode search that will direct you to your closest bus stop.
