RBC and Reading Buses have agreed to launch a new minibus service running from Kenavon Drive via the town centre to Rivermead and The Maples Resource Centre. The bus branded as BUZZ 42 and was launched on Monday 2nd October.
Rivermead will be served Monday - Saturday by BUZZ 42 and on Sundays (and Bank Holidays) is already served hourly by Greenwave 60a. (On Mondays to Fridays the Community link bus 28 also serves Rivermead 3 times a day.)
Fares for the new service are the same as currently; £1.30 single from town to Rivermead or vice versa. All other Reading Buses passes and tickets are valid and concessionary passes can be used in accordance with scheme conditions. (For disabled passes this is anytime, for OAP passes this is after 9.30am Monday-Friday, anytime at weekends.)
This new and more regular bus route during the week should make it more accessible for people to join in the physical and social activities available at Rivermead Leisure Complex and The Maples Resource Centre.
Please see the bus route and timetable for further details.
