It’s a Tall Order for Bus Passengers in Reading

October 25, 2017

Reading Bus StopBus passengers along Nine Mile Ride in Finchampstead are the tallest in the Wokingham borough.

At least, that’s what you would think from this photograph.

For the bus timetable case on a new streetlight along Nine Mile Ride has been fixed by contractors at, well, what you might call quite a height!

“You have got to be tall to read this timetable,” said one customer of Reading Buses who saw the funny side of the height of the fitting.

The bus company say they always wanted to hit new heights – but this isn’t quite what they had in mind.

For customers wanting a lift on the bus – also need a lift to see the timetable.

And it has left both bus operator and passengers a little perplexed at what the fitters were thinking!
