park & ride
If you live outside of Reading, getting into the town, and especially parking, can be a hassle. That's why it's better to sit back, relax and let our park and ride buses do all the work. Our park and ride buses are stylish and new, boasting excellent leg room, next stop audio and visual announcements, free WiFi, and, of course, wonderful drivers!
So why not park up and take the bus? Check out which park and ride service is for you below.

Winnersh Triangle park and ride is a great option for people coming from the North or East of Reading. It's also just a short 5 minute walk from the business park at Winnersh Triangle - great for workers or visitors to the site.
