What is VAMOOZ?

VAMOOZ is the great new way to get to the places other transport doesn't go! You can book return trips for days out, picking up from locations across Reading, including Central Reading and University of Reading and Bracknell.
The more people you can help us encourage to sign up, the lower the price becomes for everyone. The most you will ever pay is the price you see when booking - in most cases by the time the trips run, you will be charged less as more people book on.

If you’ve never travelled with us before, you can save £5 on your first trip! Simply download the VAMOOZ app and see where we can take you this Christmas!
