This is our name for the smartcard that is your passport to travel around Reading. We created the simplyUni pages for students and staff at the University of Reading to help make it easier for you to get around and to do so as cheaply as possible!
All the buses in Reading are colour-coded to make it easier for you to navigate our network and get around. The three services that run directly into the University of Reading, Whiteknights Campus are our claret routes 20, 20a and 21. These stylish buses all run directly onto campus, so you need not worry about getting on the wrong bus!
We understand that time is of the essence when getting to and from lectures (as well as social events!) and we want to make your journey as quick and easy as possible. Our claret coloured hybrid buses come into campus every 7-8 minutes and have free wifi so you can check your emails, Tweet, Google to your hearts content whilst we take you to or from campus!
Our buses are also smooth, clean and green, they emit a third less carbon than a conventional diesel bus.
As we do not give change on our buses for safety reasons, you will need the correct change to travel on our buses if paying by cash. The best way to avoid having to scrabble for change is to use one of our smartcards!
