Football fares

Reading FC fans waving flags

The fares for football buses are different from our normal services, so you need to buy football specific tickets - normal tickets and passes are not valid. If paying cash, please have the exact fare - our drivers don't carry change.

For timetables and further information on our matchday services click here.

Concessionary passes

These are only valid within the Wokingham Borough Council boundary - so your travel is free to the stadium, but the return journey must be paid for. This is subsidised by Reading FC so it's just £1 single fare (or £1 return on the F1 shuttle) - you must show a valid concessionary pass when boarding. If travelling within any other local authority, the £1 fare applies.
