QUOTE (James_Trinder @ Jan 25 2018, 08:04 AM) *
If you live to the north of Newbury e.g. East Ilsley and usually commute from Newbury to Reading/London by train then it is a perfectly viable option. The same applies for Whitchurch if you live in any of the border villages in Hampshire e.g. Burghclere. Obviously if you live in Newbury/Thatcham then you are better off catching the rail replacement bus instead.

That's fine, but those options always exist. What is not explained properly is that not only will there be a direct bus to Reading Buses, effectively replacing the train service from Newbury train station, but there will be buses from Newbury to Theale and Didcot train stations from where you can catch a train to Reading as well.

Angry local rail user, Mike Sarson has got it wrong.
There are direct fast buses to Reading from Hungerford, and Newbury.
The buses are not "untimed" but run to a timetable like most other bus services.
Commuters who have bought season tickets can travel to their jobs either on the bus or from Didcot or from any SWR station between Grateley and Basingstoke.

I think cheap rate should change from 9:00 to 8:30.
