I did not realise that the national express does not leave from Reading coach station so once there was told I needed a new ticket- please highlight in red that this bus leaves from the middle of the highway (M4) and not from town centre.

It is very difficult for the first time or infrequent traveller to find which locations are served by National Express, and therefore how best to plan a complicated journey. I ended up going to and from inconvenient locations because they were the only ones I could find. I later (after booking) found much more convenient points I could have left and joined the bus. Algorithms based on 'the nearest' point are not necessarily the most convenient. Also, restrictions on joining the bus at a later point on the journey are a pain - I had to get an Uber 10 miles through rush hour traffic to join a bus which then drove through (and stopped near!) the point I started from. I rang to see if I could join the bus at this point and was told no, my ticket would be cancelled if I did not join at the point the ticket was for. Grr. I would plan the journey differently next time, but it shouldnt be this hard to work out better options online.

It delivers a very efficient timely service

James B.November 27, 2018 | Staff: 5 | 

This was the second part of my journey from Bridgend to High wycombe and since the heater on this bus was working it was a great deal more comfortable than the first.

Anna B.November 27, 2018 | Staff: 5 | 

Great all round just an extra stop for the loo would make it perfect xx

Andras K.November 27, 2018 | Staff: 5 | 

It was okay

Neil G.November 26, 2018 | Staff: 5 | 

Clean, quiet and comfortable. The Driver was very professional, helpful and kept the passengers updated when required. I normally take the train to Heathrow but there was (yet another) signal problem. National Express for me next time.

On time, couldn't find any fault

Jason P.November 26, 2018 | Staff: 5 | 

The coach and staff were great but wifi was a joke on both trips - connected but did nothing on both trips. In this day and age that's unacceptable.
