Your buses around Uni

Your main bus connecting the University and the town centre is our claret 21, running 24/7 and up to every 7 minutes  Monday - Friday during term time.
Other bus routes can take you closer to certain halls of residence or to your accommodation. You can find out which bus stop is closest to your residence hall in the section below or download our Reading Buses app on your phone!

The app has a journey planner that allows you to select where you are (address or bus stop) and where you want to get to. It will then show you a guide, showing you which bus you need to get and any changes you need to make (including walking time between stops!)


Halls of Residence & Campus

Not sure which stop is the closest to your hall? We can help. Although the claret routes are predominately for students and staff of the university, sometimes our other buses might be better suited for where you want to go.
