Reading Borough residents whose sixtieth birthday is on or after 6 April 2010 (date of birth on or after 6 April 1950) should use the Government's 'State Pension age calculator' to check when they become eligible for a concessionary bus pass.

Once eligible, applicants will be entitled to a pass allowing free travel between 9.30am and 11pm Monday to Friday and at any time on weekends and bank holidays, on all local buses in the Reading urban area.

In addition to travel on all local buses in the Reading urban area, your concessionary bus pass will allow you free travel on local buses anywhere in England between 9:30am and 11:00pm on weekdays and at any time on weekends and bank holidays. Some local authorities may allow travel outside these times - please check with the local authority in which you are travelling to be sure.
