Some 400 car spaces are available at Wokingham Borough Council’s new park and ride in Winnersh, which officially opened today (Oct 26).
The new sustainable travel hub next to Winnersh Triangle train station in Wharfedale Road, gives motorists both rail and bus options for their journeys.
Located just off Junction 10 of the M4, and neighbouring Winnersh Triangle business park, it boasts two electric car chargers, CCTV, automatic number plate recognition (ANPR), as well as cycle, motorbike, and disabled parking.
It is open Monday to Saturdays, 7am to 7pm, with Reading Buses operating an express service every 15 minutes between the business park and Reading town centre along dedicated bus lanes on the A329(M) and King’s Road.
Winnersh replaces nearby Loddon Bridge Park and Ride, which was prone to flooding. This closed for good at the weekend, with the existing Reading Buses service also moving to the new site.
The cost for park and ride parking is included in the bus fare, except for concessionary travellers where a £1 parking charge (per car) is paid on the bus. Train passengers and other parkers will be charged £4 for the whole day (10 hours). Discounted season tickets are also available.
