#AYearOfBuses 207: Greenline London – Legoland Windsor

Reading buses 702

Using a little more poetic licence, today is day 207 on #AYearOfBuses – so we’re taking a look at Greenline 702.

Greenline 702 is one of the last bastions of the once-extensive Greenline network of express bus routes into London. Up until recently it was ran by First Beeline, until they pulled out (and indeed, out of places like Bracknell entirely) in December 2017. Sensing an opportunity, the ever-entrepreneurial Reading Buses swooped in.

Fairly soon after the takeover, Reading announced an order for five Optare Metrodeckers, the first production buses of their type to be ordered. For now, Greenline 702 is in the hands of a sole Metrodecker demonstrator, alongside several other buses of various types from the Reading fleet. One of Reading’s Alexander Dennis Enviro400MMCs was painted in a commemorative gold colour scheme featuring Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to mark the royal wedding!
