University P&R grows in popularity

The free University Park & Ride from Mereoak (Junction 11 M4) is becoming increasingly popular, with an average of 545 journeys made per month in the Autumn 2023, compared with just 14 journeys per month in Autumn 2022. This huge increase is great news as it is saving staff and students money, reducing congestion and air pollution. The service was introduced in September 2022 as a trial, with the offer extended to students in January 2023. The service is now well established and allows people to get to Whiteknights and London Road swiftly and without stress.

The service runs from 6:25am to 7:30pm Monday to Friday with buses every 20 minutes at peak times. For Whiteknights campus, use the Christchurch Green stop or for London Road campus, use the Royal Berkshire Hospital stop.

All you need to do is show your University of Reading campus card to the bus driver. Free parking is included, no permit needed.
