Thames Valley Route 2

It is with some regret that we have to announce that we will be withdrawing our Thames Valley route 2 from end of service, Saturday 5 May. 

We stepped in to run this route at short notice after First deregistered their service as it wasn't financially viable for them. We saw a great opportunity to help grow the service and encourage more people to travel and therefore make the service sustainable.

Unfortunately another bus operator also registered a service on this route and has the added benefit of a number of other services in the area which are Council/Heathrow funded contracts, meaning they can use these other services to run the route more efficiently in that area. 

The market is, unfortunately, not big enough for two bus operators and we did not set out to have an ’on the road’ competitive situation. To this end, as mentioned above, we will no longer be running our Route 2 after end of service Saturday 5 May.

Courtney Buses will continue to run and provide an alternative service.

some good news

However, it's not all bad news! We will continue to operate between Windsor and Slough and are re-deploying our Thames Valley route 2 resources to enhance our Green Line service! We will be offering a new Bracknell - Windsor - Slough - Heathrow Green Line 703 service daily, from Tuesday 8 May.

This new route will work in conjunction with Green line 702 to provide a combined half hourly service between Langley, Slough, Windsor and LEGOLAND Windsor Resort® daily. 

We hope to see you on-board our Green Line 702/703 services from the 8 May. 

We will, of course, continue serving Dedworth to our usual high standards until our withdrawal application takes effect. 

Weekly tickets won’t be sold after 30 April.

Thank you for your continued loyalty and custom in the meantime.
