Buses - information and advice
Changes to supported bus services
There are two main bus operators in Bracknell Forest - First and Courtney Coaches.
Some services are run by the bus operators commercially. For other services, which would otherwise not be available, the council contributes towards the operating costs and these are known as supported services. Following a recent tender evaluation, all the supported services will be run by Courtney Coaches from 1 August 2015. Some of the supported routes and timetables will be altered slightly to make improvements to services. Details of the changes will be made available shortly
Links to the websites of the main bus operators showing routes and timetables are on our web page about bus routes and timetables. For information on fares, please contact the bus operator directly.
Alternatively, the Traveline website provides timetable, route and bus stop information together with maps to help you plan a bus journey. You can also telephone Traveline on 0871 200 2233 to speak to someone about a bus-related question.
Changes to Bracknell bus station
Major improvement work is taking place at Bracknell bus station. The work is part of the town centre regeneration and will include new waiting shelters with real-time information, re-surfacing, new paving and new cycle facilities.
Bays at the bus station will be closed in ranks of three to reduce inconvenience as much as possible. The first three bays to be closed are 7, 8 and 9. Please look out for more information and details of where to catch your bus at the bus station.
Concessionary bus fares
Residents who have reached the qualifying age or who are eligible through disability can apply for a national concessionary bus pass. The scheme allows pass holders to travel on local bus services for free at weekends and at off-peak times during the week.
