On foot
You will find Reading to be a very walkable town. With all public transport serving the centre it is easy to walk from there to major venues such as the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading College, University of Reading (London Road Campus) and the Civic Centre.

A walking commute (of about 20 minutes) is easy from Newtown, Coley, the central areas of Oxford Road, Southcote and lower Caversham.
By Train
Reading is the second busiest interchange on the national rail network outisde of London and has direct routes to almost every part of the UK. Use our quicklink for timetable and connection details.

It is also easy to commute by train. Reading has four local stations (Reading mainline, Reading West, Tilehurst and Earley) as well as excellent stopping services to neighbouring towns large and small.

These days more people commute into Reading than out of it, with some xxxx people using the main station every day.
NB: Reading Station is currently undergoing an £850 million expansion project. This may casue some disruption to weekend services. Any major network alterations are publicised well in advance.
By Coach
National Express coaches serve Calcot (about 6 miles west of Reading centre, just off M4 J12), but do not come into the town itself. Any local bus on the Calcot/A4 route heading east will take you into the town centre.
By Bus
Reading has an excellent local bus service. Reading Buses serves the entire Reading urban area and some of the local villages. Newbury Buses offers routes between Reading and Newbury/West Berkshire. Other rural areas are served by Arriva, First and Thames Travel buses.

Please note there are no bus services to London or Oxford, which have excellent train services.
By Car
Parking in Reading is relatively easy as the town has plenty of good quality multi storey car-parks (mostly pay on exit). However, as with any major city, congestion can be a problem at peak times, and you are advised to plan your journeys carefully if you are driving across town at peak times (or better still avoid travelling at peak if at all possible).

Car parks are clearly sign-posted as you enter the town centre. Real time traffic information signs on main routes into the town centre will advise you if car parks are full.
You may prefer to avoid traffic stress by using one of our Park and Ride Services. Parking is free, and you can save money by buying a return or family ticket on the bus. Buses run approx every 8 minutes.
South: Madejski Stadium, just off Junc 11/ M4. Mon - Fri, approx 7am - 6.30pm, Sat - Sun 9am - 6pm.
NB Parking may be affected on match days.
East: Loddon Bridge, off the A329M, at Showcase Cinema). Mon - Fri approx 7am -6.30pm, Sat 8am -6.30pm.
By Bike
Reading is on several of the UK's Sustrans Routes (routes 4, 5 and 23) linking the town with Oxford, Newbury and Basingstoke. Reading Borough Council produces a useful map of the town's recommended cycle routes to get you around once you are here. There is good (but very well used) cycle parking in the town centre including covered spaces at The Oracle.
There are motor bike stands at Forbury Road, Kings Road, Oxford Road and St Mary's Butts.
