English: Reading Buses is the main bus operator in the English town of Reading. It is also one of the few remaining municipal bus companies in the United Kingdom. The company was previously split into three divisions; Reading Buses, Newbury Buses and Goldline Transport, though these are now played down in favour of a single Reading Buses brand.
