Welcome to Kennections - the new name for your services in Newbury, Hungerford and the Kennet Valley!
You may have seen in the press that Reading Buses is the new operator for many routes in West Berkshire - our buses and drivers will be on the road from Monday 5 September.
These services are in addition to our jet black 1 service that runs between Reading and Newbury via Thatcham.
For information on these services and others in West Berkshire, visit the West Berkshire Council website here

There will be new buses in the new Kennections colours on these routes from Monday - you won't fail to see them in their wonderful green and red livery! The West Berkshire Connect tickets will still be valid on all these services, and you will be able to use your simplyNewbury and Thatcham tickets and smartcards on service 101 and 102!

Please note - there are new timetables from Tuesday 3 January 2017.
