Cementing our relationship with Newbury & District

238 days ago Fri 28th Sep 2018

We are delighted to announce the acquisition of Newbury & District's operation in the Newbury and Thatcham area.

We’ve worked successfully together for many years on delivering the jet black 1 route between Reading and Newbury, also following our lucrative operation of the Kennections network under contract to West Berkshire Council since September 2016.

We have been looking at ways of strengthening and expanding our network and after the recent success with our Green Line and Thames Valley services to the east of Reading we realised we had a great opportunity on our own doorstep.

We will be sorting out all the details and ensuring there is a smooth transition so that our customers will see no disruption to their services.

Initially, Newbury & District will be running all of their services exactly as at present whilst further into the future we may look at merging some routes and harmonising branding.

Simon Weaver, outgoing Managing Director of Newbury & District, says:  "Reading Buses has evolved into a multi-award winning business synonymous with style and innovation. We are delighted that our customers and staff will be in such safe hands."
