Forthcoming Events

Zoom Meeting on Friday 4 December 2020

From December our traditional 'first Friday of the month' meetings will resume using Zoom. An advantage will be that these meetings will be accessible without the need to travel.

“Doors open” at 19.15 when you will be able to chat online with other members. The presentation will last for one hour, starting at 19.30. Dave Hall will present the story of the first 50 years of municipal transport in Reading (1901 – 1951). This will include the end of the horse trams, the entire electric tram era and the trolleybus system including its major post-war expansion, as well as motor buses from 1919.

To register to attend please email and you will be sent joining instructions.


BTS 60th Anniversary in 2021

The BTS (originally formed as the Reading Transport Society in 1961) will be celebrating its 60th birthday in 2021 and we are planning a number of events to mark the occasion, which hopefully will take place in August/September 2021, subject to covid 19 restrictions at that time.

Sadly, at the moment, we cannot plan any further events due to covid 19 restrictions.
