Getting to the station


Cycle parking is available at all rail stations in the borough.


PlusBus is a discounted bus ticket for people making a combined rail and bus journey. It allows unlimited local bus travel around town at the start, the end, or on both ends of your train journey. This could be especially appealing to commuters who currently drive to the railway station and pay for parking.

For more information and a map showing the area where you can use a Bracknell PlusBus ticket, download the PlusBus leaflet or visit the national Plusbus website.

Railcard subsidy

Bracknell Forest Council offers a subsidised railcard as an alternative to a bus pass to residents aged over 65 and for disabled people who are renewing their railcard. These railcards give holders a third off most standard and first-class rail fares across Great Britain for a whole year. For more information about this, please visit our travel concessions page.
