It's finally here!

Welcome to the all new, Reading Buses website. 

There's tons of features that are new, as well as still providing you with the same high-quality information about our services and products! Have a look below at each section and have a play!

We've worked hard on this new site to give you a better experience and, hopefully, make it easier to find information. It's also now mobile-friendly!

If you have any suggestions for the new website or if something isn't quite working, please email us: [email protected] 

live times

Find your stop on the map and see the live bus departures! Each stop shows you the next few buses counting down, meaning you can check your bus before leaving to make sure it's on its way. 

You can also click into a departure to see the bus tracking live on a map - or select the 'track buses' option to see all buses that run through that stop. Great for busy roads with multiple services such as Oxford Road.

timetables, maps and bus tracking 

In the routes and times menu, you can find information about your service. You will see a live map with your buses tracking, so you can always know where your service is.

You can also see your timetable - choose to view as either 'major stops' or 'all stops.' You can select the direction and date of travel so you always know what the buses are doing on the date you are going to travel.

If you just want a printable timetable and map, that's there too!

Fares and tickets and online shop

Our fares and tickets page show you all the tickets you can get and breaks them down to make it easier to find the right product for you.

Our online shop is still the same as current - but we are looking to upgrade this in the near future so watch this space!

journey planner

If you aren't sure how to get from A to B, our journey planner can help! You can use our journey planner to find a stop, or a geographical area, to go from and to and it will tell you which buses you need to get and when. We are working on the journey planner constantly to ensure that it gives you the best results so keep checking for updates as we make this function even better!

things to do

A great new feature is 'things to do.' This shows you events and attractions in the local area that you can get to by bus, giving you more reasons to travel with us. We will be constantly updating this to show you all the great things that Reading has to offer!

students - University of Reading

University of Reading have their own dedicated hub to give all the information they need to take advantage of our buses.
