Changes to Kennections buses

Now that we have had some experience running the Kennections routes since September, we have been working with West Berkshire Council to see what improvements we can make based on our observations as well as customer and driver feedback. We hope that these changes will increase our customers experience of these routes - if you have any suggestions for future improvements, feel free to let us know!

We have outlined the changes for each route below and have provided a link for you to access the new PDF timetable.

tickets valid on these services

We have also had lots of instances of people trying to use Kennet Bus tickets on these buses - please note that Kennet Bus is not operated by us and therefore those tickets are not valid on our vehicles. The only other non-Reading Buses tickets we accept are West Berkshire Connect Tickets.
