BUS services in and around Newbury are subject to change from today (Monday).
Revised routes will be provided under contract to the council by Kennections, owned by Reading Buses, linking Newbury with destinations including Greenham, Wash Common, Park House School, Kintbury, Inkpen, Hungerford, Lambourn, Hermitage, Hampstead Norreys, Compton, East and West Ilsley, Thatcham via London Road and West Berks Community Hospital.
Rural routes will be served by three new minibuses, purchased using transitional funding provided by the Government.
The minibuses will continue public transport services to communities that would have been more severely affected by the council’s budget reductions this year.

Service 41 (replaces 101) – links to Cold Ash, Upper Bucklebury and Chapel Row
