If you are a student or member of staff at the University of Reading - we can save you time and money! Our drivers don't carry change but our smartcards provide a solution to carrying change and they also save you money!
When buying online, you will be asked for your university department so we can check you are really a student or member of staff! When buying at the bus shop in Reading, you must show your university ID to buy or top up products.
*Our 18 & under 'Solo' fares have changed their name to Boost! It's been extended to allow students at Reading University to take advantage of the cheaper fares up to 21 as long as they show valid university ID. We will be operating a challenge 21 policy - so if you look older, you will need to show a valid college or university ID otherwise you will be charged the appropriate adult fare!
Boost is our super cheap option for people aged 18 & under. But you can also get it if you’re 19-21yo and go to a local college or university. Just show your student ID when you get on the bus! Check our boost tickets on the fares page
Our simplyUni season tickets are the best option for staff and students who travel most days of the week. These smartcards make travel cheaper and give you unlimited travel within the simplyReading area.
Pay for your bus ticket when you buy your train ticket using PLUSBUS and you could save on your bus travel.
If you have a 16-25 Railcard, you can save one-third off your PLUSBUS day ticket.
