Newbury & District and Reading Buses

In September 2018, Reading Buses completed the acquisition of Newbury & District.

The two companies have worked successfully together for many years delivering the jet black 1 service between Reading and Newbury.

After a period of analysis and reflection, the process has now begun to harmonise the two businesses to see how they can work closer to maximise the benefit of being under the same ownership. All Newbury & District information can now be found on the Reading Buses website.

new branding

You may also have noticed some rather smart new colours for some of our buses appearing around Newbury and the surrounding area. 

The buses are in the recognisable Newbury & District black now include a standout new lime accent to bring some commonality with Kennections buses in the Newbury area.

The new logo includes a bird motif that draws influence from the old Newbury & District logo which had a wave shape that looked bird-like. It also celebrates the connection of rural areas and towns - and the freedom to travel.

We hope you all enjoy spotting the new designs around the town!

Easy Access

All our buses have a wide, step free entrance, making them particularly suitable for wheelchair users, those with restricted mobility and passengers with pushchairs, lots of shopping and/or small children. We do not operate minibuses or crew buses on any of our services. 

More information about these and other public transport services is available via the Council's Public Transport website.
