Reading Buses and Reading Football Club have reinstated the full set of district bus services to and from the Madejski Stadium on match days, and for the new 2000/2001 season added stop-off points on the district services.
The buses are great for beating the traffic and getting there and back quickly.

The Cost

Return tickets can not be used on two different bus routes, so if you take a 79 there and then a 76 back you'll need to buy two single tickets.
A return on the district services is two quid for the 2000/2001 season.

The Times

The following bus times are included for reference only as they are probably more relevant for home fans. But should you find yourself visting someone in a strange part of Reading you can always jump on one of the district buses! District buses now pick people up en-route (new for the 2000/2001 season).
A return for the number 79 service is £1.70, or a single is £1.10 - a family ticket is available for £3.00.
Thanks to Reading Buses for permission to re-produce the timetable.
