Reading Buses has unveiled a Platinum Jubilee double-deck bus which will grace the streets of Reading, Windsor and London. Robert Williams, Reading Buses Chief Executive Officer, explained: “We are unveiling a bus to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee in a similar way to the golden jubilee 20 years ago.

“The design uses the official emblem which was created specially for the Platinum Jubilee event by Edward Roberts, a 19-year-old student at the University of Leeds. It sits on our silver livery for use on any route.

“This is such a monumental occasion that we eagerly want to celebrate. The bus will appear on our high-profile Green Line 702 service which passes Windsor Castle and also runs into London very near to Buckingham Palace.

“We want to share the joy of this special year and we are delighted that the official emblem is available for use for all activities associated with the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.” Robert added: “In addition to passing or travelling close to the royal residences, the Platinum Jubilee bus will also regularly be seen on local services in Reading so we hope people will look out for it.”
