Boxing Day football buses

1 month ago Fri 13th Dec 2019

The Royals are at home once again on Boxing Day after an absence of a couple of years. They play host to QPR who are currently mid-table in the championship.

As you will all have heard, the kick off time has been moved to accommodate the television schedules - which put the time outside of when we normally run buses on Boxing Day! The great news is that we have come to an agreement with Reading FC to run the football buses past our normal finish times.

what are the times?

As the kick off is 7.30pm which is not a standard time, we have provided the summary timetables for each service below. The buses should depart 30 minutes earlier than for an 8pm kick off.

fares

The even better news for fans is that it is normal fares this Boxing Day!

We normally apply a £1 supplement on Boxing Day to cover our increased costs, but Reading FC's principal sponsor have agreed to cover this on all fares, meaning you only pay the normal ticket price.
