Bus service to continue

GORING’S Readibus service will continue for at least another 18 months.

GORING’S Readibus service will continue for at least another 18 months.

Goring Gap News has agreed to pay half of the charity’s £117 monthly running costs until April 2017 while Goring Parish Council is to cover the remainder.

Readibus operates a fortnightly dial-a-ride shuttle which carries up to 11 elderly or disabled Goring residents to Reading and back in a specially adapted vehicle.

It ran once a week until Oxfordshire County Council stopped funding it in 2013. Since then, passenger numbers have increased by about 1,000 per year.

The service depends on charitable donations.
