Advance fares

If you are going to be travelling a lot on our buses, the easiest, and cheapest, way of buying is in advance. You can buy smartcards online or at the bus shop in the Broad Street Mall, Reading, or for the tech-savvy, why not buy tickets on your mobile using our app?

The ticket you need will depend on the area you travel in and the length of ticket you need.

For more information on smartcards and period tickets and how they work click here.

simplyReading

The simplyReading area is where most of our buses run - it's basically what most people would think of as 'Reading town.' If you travel outside of Reading, scroll down (or click the links) to see our other fare zones - simplyNetwork, simplyNewbury & Thatcham, simplyWokingham & Bracknell and simplyBracknell.
