Exciting changes to Green Line

It has been nearly four months since we took over Green Line 702 after First withdrew from this service in December 2017 and we have been hard at work trying to understand how the service works and how we can improve things for our customers. 

We have been looking at how customers use the route and how this information can help shape the service in the future. 

As we now have some good data from customer numbers, driver feedback and, of course, customer comments and suggestions, we are now in a position where we can start to make our first 'proper' changes to help the long-term future of the route.

timetable change Tuesday 8 May

After the bank holiday weekend in early May, we will be introducing new timetables on Green Line 702 and making some changes to the route to improve reliability. 

Green Line 702 - Windsor to London only

From the above date, Green Line 702 will no longer run most of its journeys from Bracknell - instead it will run between Windsor (LEGOLAND Windsor Resort®) and London Victoria. There will still be the three early morning and evening ‘peak time’ commuter journeys which will continue to start in Reading and run through Bracknell. There will also be a 9.30am trip from Bracknell which is perfect for concessionary pass holders from other local authorities - Bracknell Forest concessionary pass holders can, of course, travel at any time!

new route 703 for Bracknell, North Ascot and Heathrow

The good news for the people of Bracknell is that they will now have the brand new Green Line 703 to replace the 702. 

This new route will run hourly to LEGOLAND Windsor Resort®, Windsor, Slough and Langley. It will also provide a new fast and direct link to Heathrow Terminal 5 (where you can take advantage of free onward bus/rail connections to other terminals).

North Ascot and Winkfield will, however, be served every two hours by this new service due to low usage. Alternate journeys will operate fast along the main road.

Green Line 702 and 703 - a winning combination

Green Line 702 and 703 will provide a combined half hourly service between Langley, Slough, Windsor and LEGOLAND Windsor Resort® daily. You will still be able to take advantage of our great value period tickets and all of these will, of course, be able to be used on both services (normal restrictions notwithstanding). 

Full timetables will be available online and on board buses soon - keep checking back for details.
