season 2021/22

Welcome to a new season! All the information you need is below to help get you to the matches. Let's all get on board with the Royals and cheer them on to (hopefully) get promoted to the Premier League!

New routes for 2021/22

There are a few new routes for the new season giving even more options for you to get to the game. 

F3 park & ride

The F3 shuttle replaces the old greenwave 60f that used to be diverted on matchdays. This new service is entirely dedicated to the football meaning it is even easier to use to park and ride to the match and does not affect the running of the Mereoak park & ride service to the town.

F51 Basingstoke

The new route runs through Basingstoke, Tadley and Burghfield to get you to the match. Times are below!

F52 Farnborough

Catch the F52 in Farnborough, Yateley and Crowthorne.

F53 Wokingham

The F53 gives access to the stadium from Wokingham, Emmbrook and Winnersh.

F54 Bracknell

Bracknell residents can now catch the F54 to the match.
