Reading Borough Council is proposing cuts to concessionary fares for disabled people

It would leave 6,000 Access Pass holders in Reading having to pay to board a bus before 9.30 am and after 11pm

Another proposal is scrapping the companion bus pass scheme which allows carers of Access Pass holders to travel free of charge

Access Pass holders will also have to pay to use Readibus services if the proposals are approved.

Contact Berkshire DPAC for information or support at

The protest will be outside Reading Borough Council, The Civic Office, Bridge Street, RG1 2LU at 6pm Monday 24 September.

If you can’t get to the protest, you can tweet to Reading Borough Council on @ReadingCouncil to let them know what you think of this.
