Second Wave of Pop-Art Adverts


1st June saw Reading Buses update their Pop-Art advertising campaign to capture the imagination and attention of people in the town with three new messages to highlight the latest fare deals. Six buses advertise the new group 6.50 Busabout, seven advertise the new Easysaver 10 ticket and five advertise how easy smartcards make buying a ticket .

The adverts were applied on 30th and 31st May, but only 842 managed to creep out with its new advert 'early' on Saturday 30th May. The original 4 OmniDekkas (801, 808, 809, 810) and 14 Olympuses (841/2/4/5/6/9, 850/2/3/5/6/7/8/9) have all received updated adverts.
