  • Travel to Harwell and Didcot by bus
  • Fare cap for local buses

The A340 (Basingstoke Road) at Aldermaston Village is closed from 8 January to 15 March 2024, this will have an effect on the 44 services operated by West Berkshire Council Transport Team. This is due to works on the Aldermaston Wharf Lifting Bridge. 

The 44 service will continue to serve the Aldermaston Wharf bus stops on Basingstoke Road, and will divert via Station Road, the A4 Bath Road and Frouds Lane. This applies for all journeys, apart from the 16.20 departure from Thatcham Broadway. For this journey, the bus will drop passengers who wish to go to Aldermaston Village at the Butt Inn Public House on the A340. Passengers can the access the village and Aldermaston Station via the pedestrian footbridge from Swan Drive to Mallard Way, it is approx. 10 minutes walk. 

HM Government funded by logo.

From September 2023,  Newbury & District  have introduced a late evening service between Newbury and Thatcham on Friday and Saturday evenings and Lime 2a operated by Reading Buses  now extends to Mortimer every 2 hours on Sundays.

The Friday and Saturday 1e late evening service runs between Newbury Wharf and Thatcham Broadway, extending to Falmouth Way. The service also passes through the Turnpike Estate. Why not use the bus to go to the cinema, the Corn Exchange, go out for a bite to eat or meet friends and family in local bars and eateries.

The Lime 2a has been extended to serve Mortimer every 2 hours on Sundays, providing a bus link to Burghfield and Reading which has not been available for some years.  You could use the service to go shopping in Reading, catch the latest film, visit friends/or family, or access job opportunities.

These service enhancements build on a long-held ambition of West Berkshire Council to enhance late evening and Sunday bus services across the district and with the recent introduction of the X34 between Newbury and Harwell Campus/Didcot ensure that local bus services continue to evolve.

Your  concessionary fares bus pass will be accepted on these services between 9.30am and 11pm on Fridays and all day on Saturdays and Sundays.

These service extensions have been made possible by funding from HM Government, given to West Berkshire Council after submission of a Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP) in October 2021 and the council has partnered with Reading Buses and Newbury & District to make these services a reality.

There will be further announcements about your local bus services in the coming months so please do look out for them.

Travel to Harwell and Didcot by bus 

The service is called X34 and runs hourly between Newbury and Harwell Campus Monday to Saturday and is operated by Thames Travel who are part of Oxford Bus Company.

It provides a vital link between Newbury and a very prestigious local science and innovation campus as well as providing a link to Didcot where there is onward bus travel to Abingdon, Oxford, John Radcliffe Hospital, Wallingford and Wantage.

Why not use the bus to go to work at the Harwell Campus, to go on a day trip with family and friends or take advantage of shopping opportunities in Didcot or Oxford.

You can  find the timetable for the service here .

The service between Newbury and the Harwell Campus (bus services already existed between Didcot and Harwell) has been made possible by funding from HM Government, given to West Berkshire Council and Oxfordshire County Council after submission of a Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP) in October 2021. 

Fare cap for bus journeys 

You may have heard the Government's announcement about a fare cap , introduced across most bus services in England in late 2022. This offer has now been extended to 31 December 2024. 

The council is pleased to announce that bus journeys across West Berkshire will capped at £2 for a single journey and £4 for a return journey. 

Its intention is to provide affordable bus travel for millions across England and you can travel any time of day. The scheme forms part of the Government's Help for Households campaign, as the new cap can deliver real savings for those most affected by the rising cost of living. 

So why not use the bus to get to work, go shopping, attend an appointment, go for a bite to eat in the local eateries, take in some of the outstanding scenery, or meet friends and family.

This fare cap builds on the allocation of more than £2 billion to support bus services in England through the pandemic and a commitment to fund improved services, new bus priority measures and new electric or hydrogen buses as part of the ambitious National Bus Strategy , published in 2021. 

The fare cap will be applied on the following routes across the district:

Other services may be taking part.

You can find the  full list of operators taking part across England on the Government's website .

Trains services that operate in West Berkshire maybe subject to change, often at short notice, updated information can be found on the  Great Western Railway (GWR) website .

National Express is not currently operating in West Berkshire. 

The Government has removed all domestic legal restrictions relating to COVID-19. 

There is no longer a legal requirement to wear a face covering, but the government suggests that people consider wearing one when COVID-19 rates are high and you will be in close contact with others such as in crowded and enclosed spaces, when you come into close contact with someone in a high risk category and when there are a lot of respiratory viruses circulating. 

You can find more detailed information about coronavirus guidance on the GOV.UK website .
