Windsor Express - Fares
fares and ticketing
As part of the governments help for households scheme, until 31 December 2023 all single fares on London Line 702 and Flightline 703 are just £2 regardless of journey length.
Boost is available on London Line and Flightline for younger people - it's our name for a child fare and allows you to get discounted travel up to the age of 18. If you are buying on any of our apps, you must verify your age or educational status before you can use a Boost ticket. If you're lucky enough to look over 18 when buying onboard you may also be asked for ID from the driver.
more ways to pay
We like to make life easy here at Reading Buses, so our handy Windsor Express app has mobile ticket (mTicket) availability meaning you can buy tickets on your phone! The Windsor Express app provides all the tickets you need for both London Line 702 and Flightline 703 services.
We also take cash and contactless payments on board and smartcards are also available to purchase from our online shop.

simplySlough & Windsor zone
We have, in conjunction with Thames Valley Buses, a simplySlough & Windsor fare zone which covers the Slough and Windsor area.
You can buy tickets in this zone and use them on any Thames Valley or Windsor Express services bus. If you travel outside of this zone, you will need to buy different tickets. See the table of period tickets below. You can buy these on the Green Line app.
