An amazing local ‘not for profit’ company based in Goring, Going Forward Buses CIC, has recently set up a local community bus service – the 142 (Mondays to Saturdays) and 144 (Sundays).
The new service means that buses will once again stop at the entrance to the Park as well as Pangbourne and Goring Railway Stations – which is great for train connections.
Buses also run to and from Blagrave Street in Reading.
