Courtney Buses wins contract for eight Wokingham routes

Finchampstead-based Courtney Buses has won a contract for eight Wokingham routes from July, previously held by Go-Ahead owned Thames Travel..

Routes 121-124 run in and around the town centre and 126-129 run from Wokingham, through Winnersh, Hurst, Twyford, Sonning to Reading.

Courtney is taking delivery of two new Optare Solos to help in its operations.

Says Transport Manager Simon Fisher: “Courtney Buses has been operating for 41 years and began life in Wokingham when our MD, Bill Courtney-Smith, bought two taxi services before turning to running coaches and, in the 1980s, becoming a bus company.”
