Easier to get on the buses
November 25, 2008
Wokingham's mayor was sampling the borough’s public transport as she tried out a new bus service.
Councillor Pauline Helliar-Symons officially opened the new ‘easy access’ bus on Tuesday, November 11, after jumping on board at a stop in Broad Street.
The service has been running since Monday, October 27, and is the latest in a line of services introduced by Wokingham Borough Council and Thames Travel aimed at improving the transport network.
She said: “I’m really pleased to see that in the past year alone we have improved the level of bus service on offer in the borough for people who want to get about in more environmentally friendly way or do not have a car.”
Since October Thames Travel has been running 126, 127, 128 and 129 services, which link Reading, Woodley, Sonning, Charvil, Twyford, Winnersh and Wokingham.
Full details of the new services are on the council’s website at www.wokingham.gov.uk/transport-roads-waste.
