Reading Buses: new ticket services and features

Reading Buses tickets and services

Did you know that you can use the Reading Buses app to buy tickets and track journeys in real time?

Whether you’re a regular passenger on the 21a or catch the occasional bus into town, Reading Buses have recently launched several new services that make travelling by bus even easier.  

Pay for your bus trip with your phone or contactless card

Gone are the days of hunting for exact change – Reading Buses now accept contactless payments via debit cards and their mobile app.  Depending on how often you travel, it may still be slightly cheaper to use easysaver10 tickets or longer period passes.

You can find out about the full range of ticket types at the Reading Buses Fare page.

Take two buses with one ticket

The new 60 minute transfer ticket can be used on more than one bus – idea if you need to change buses to complete your journey. The final bus journey must start within the 60 minute period, it doesn’t have to be completed then. You can also now buy these through the Reading Buses app

Know where your bus is with the Reading Buses app 

Fed up of playing the waiting game? The Reading Buses app lets you keep track of where buses are in real time – so you know exactly where it is and when it will reach you.  

Staff discount 

Reading Buses offer discounts on annual or 90 day passes for University staff.

Under this scheme the payments will be taken as deductions from your net salary each month in equal instalments. Prices can be found on the HR Bus to Work page. 

More information on Reading Buses and University services are available on the Sustainability Services bus page.
