The 360 RUSU bus- a free and safe way to travel to and from the student’s union

Calling all club goers of Reading university! You can still travel to and from 3-Sixty every Wednesday night by using the free 360 bus.

Reading buses teamed up with RUSU in 2021, to supply students with a free bus service to and from the student housing area to 3- Sixty at RUSU during term time. This service provides a safer way to travel at night-time which is quicker, more convenient and sustainable. Due to the great success of the 360-bus, students are still able to use this service weekly. As someone who has used the service in the past, I can honestly say that it comes regularly, is fast, and you may experience somewhat of a lively atmosphere whilst travelling.

The first bus leaves at 10pm from the ‘Three tuns’ stop and passes various stops through the Palmer Park, London Road and Erleigh road student populated areas. Some of the most notable stops are ‘Palmer Park Avenue’, ‘Cemetery junction’, ‘Denmark Road’, ‘Foxhill Road’ and ‘Christchurch Green’. When you have completed your night at union, the 360 bus will leave from RUSU to the student area every 30 minutes between 12am-2:30am.

If you want to avoid standing outside by the bus stop in the cold, then you can track the 360-bus using the Reading Buses app.
