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.
