Rediscover bus travel
If you haven’t been on a bus for a while, things have changed.
Today's buses are brimming with technology to make your journey easier, including free WiFi, USB charging, contactless payment, e-tickets, onboard next stop announcements, and apps that allow you to track your bus in real-time.
Most buses go right to the centre of Bracknell near to the Lexicon and the rail station, making them ideal for shopping and commuting. Wheelchair users and parents with prams will find that most buses are much more accessible than they used to be, with raised kerbs at some stops and hydraulics to lower buses.
They’re great value
Whether you get the bus once in a blue moon or every day of the week, there'll be a ticket that suits your needs. All the bus companies offer a range of tickets. Singles, returns, daily and weekly tickets can usually be bought on the bus itself, whilst all other tickets can be purchased in advance. You can make greater savings with long term tickets and buying tickets is now easier than ever thanks to smartcards or mobile apps.
Find out more about tickets and savings on the bus operators' own websites:
Catching the bus is as simple as ever
Technology may have changed, but the act of catching the bus hasn't - you still head to the bus stop and put your hand out when a bus comes if you want it to stop. You can check the details of your journey online before you leave, cutting down on waiting time. You can also buy your tickets in advance, or pay by bank card on the bus. If you're not sure if you've got the right bus, just ask the driver - they'll be happy to help.
Plans for the future
In accordance with Government guidance, the Council has published a Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP), an Enhanced Partnership Plan and Scheme and a Passenger Charter.
