Newbury & District is a name synonymous with public transport in West Berkshire since 1932. Nearly 85 years later we’re proud to be providing the very highest levels of service with modern buses and a small team of friendly drivers.


From Monday 5th September 2016, the provision of West Berkshire Council’s financially-supported services in the Newbury area will switch from Newbury &l District to another contractor.

More information about these and other public transport services is available via the Council's Public Transport website.

From this date, Newbury & District will continue to operate services 9/9a/9b/9c and 103.

In addition we will be operating brand new services 1a and 1c for the benefit of our customers who previously travelled with us on routes 101/102/104/105 between Thatcham & Newbury. We are also delighted to be able to announce the introduction of a new fast link between Thatcham and Newbury numbered 1d. As a special introductory offer, Service 1d will be free to use until 23rd October.

As well as single and day return tickets for both adults, children and young people (aged 5 to 16, and students in full-time education through to their 19th birthday), we sell and accept West Berkshire Council's Connect Day, FlexiConnect 10-trip, Connect-7 seven-day and Connect-30 thirty-day tickets. The Connect Day ticket allows unlimited travel on all of our services, while the FlexiConnect ticket lets you travel when you like, for up to ten single journeys within the Newbury and Thatcham urban area. We also accept valid tickets issued by other bus companies between points which we both serve.

We participate in the English National Concessionary Travel scheme, whereby senior citizens and other holders of valid concessionary travel passes travel free after 09.00 on weekdays and all day at weekends and on Public Holidays.

All our buses are fitted with seatbelts and all have a step-less entrance, making them particularly suitable for wheelchair users and passengers with pushchairs. Every bus is powered by the very latest Euro 5 or Euro 6 low emission engine, resulting in our fleet being extremely environmentally friendly.


Our buses are also available to hire; we offer a range of sizes from 29 to 86 seats, so please call 01635 33855 or email: with your requirements.
