Reading bus shop - new opening hours

1 month ago Fri 27th May 2022

As more people turn to our website and app for information and ticketing, we are revising our bus shop times to reflect this.

Starting on Wednesday 1 June you will still be able to pop into our Broad Street Mall store between Monday to Friday (9.00am - 5pm) but the shop will now be closed on weekends. But remember, there’s still our website and app to help your 24/7.


The easiest, and cheapest, way to get a smartcard continues to be our website. Go online, order and have your smartcard delivered to your door. You can also use our website to top it up when your travel is running low – just leave 24 hours (or overnight) for the top-up to appear on your card.

You can also use our app to buy mobile tickets which are delivered to your phone instantly – no need to wait for the post!

planning a journey?

Lots of the information that you need is on our website and app. Our simple to use journey planner helps you to find the best route from A to B at any time of day, or to plan a journey in the future.

You can get live bus departures from your favourite stops and track your bus live on an interactive map to have confidence that it is just around the corner!

All the timetables for each route are online and in the app, as well as the planned roadworks affecting our services.
