New Solars for Madejski FastTrack


Three new Scania L94UB / Wright Solars are to enter service on the Madejski Stadium / MCI Park & Ride on Monday. They wear standard First livery with additional FastTrack branding that mirrors Reading Buses' new livery for route branded quality corridors.

The idea behind the use of basic First livery is a desire to make sure that the Saturday fleet, which includes a fourth vehicle from the normal First fleet, looks as much of a whole as the Monday to Friday will service with the three dedicated vehicles.

RMC for Job and Career Opportunities Exhibition


A general careers fair was held at Rivermead today and yesterday, open from 10am to 7pm yesterday and 10am to 6pm today. A special shuttle bus was organised to operate to and from the station, and was operated by First. A hand written notice by the First Great Western information screens in the station directed visitors to the departure point, whilst surprisingly RMC1510 was chosen to operate the service today!
