Football bus changes from 27 January

6 months ago Mon 8th Jan 2024

From Saturday 27 January, we will be making changes to some of our football bus routes in Caversham, Purley and Tilehurst. These changes are being made to better reflect the attendance figures of Reading FC and their usage of our football buses on matchdays.

The following routes will be affected:

F11 - Emmer Green to Reading FC Stadium

This route will no longer run, however fans will be able to use our F10 route, which serves all bus stops along the F11 route.

F13 - Caversham Park to Reading FC Stadium

This route will no longer run, however fans in the Caversham Park section will be able to use our F14 route which will be rerouted to now serve this area. The F14 will stop at all stops on our F13 route except for Fraser Avenue, Kiln Road, Cavendish Road, Barnard Close and Aerial View. Fans using these stops will either be able to catch the F10 from the same stop or walk to the nearest stop on the F10 or F14.

F14 - Henley to Reading FC Stadium

This route is being rerouted to now also serve Caversham Park. It will also no longer run via Dunsden Green and instead remain on Henley Road towards Caversham after the Shiplake College stop. It will then stop at the Garden Centre stop on Henley Road and run via Caversham Park Road stopping at Devon Drive, Dumbarton Way, Littlestead Close, Osterley Drive, Queensway, Northbrook Road, Milestone Centre, Montpelier Drive, Galsworthy Drive and Earlsfield Close before resuming the current F14 route from Henley Road County Boundary.

It will repeat this loop on the return journey from the stadium.

F24 - Purley to Reading FC Stadium

This route will no longer run, however fans will be able to use either our F23 route for stops in Purley or our F22 for stops in Tilehurst.

All of our other football services will be unaffected by these changes.
