BusHound: An attraction

There will be two star attractions to make Reading Buses’ next Open Day – often known as the Family Fun Day – very different from the previous six.

On display for the first time at its Great Knollys Street depot on Sunday (14 June) will be the company’s world’s fastest bus, ‘BusHound’, as well as a New Routemaster bus from London – the first one to be seen in Reading.

The day, which this year is in aid of Alzheimer’s Society, also offers the chance for visitors to go behind the scenes with tours of the workshop and control room as well as many other attractions, such as the ever-popular ride through the bus wash.
