Reading Green Park Station
Reading Green Park Station is a proposed new railway station on the Reading to Basingstoke line in south Reading.

This scheme is included within the Thames Valley Berkshire Local Growth Deal.
South Reading MRT
South Reading Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) will provide a series of bus priority measures on the A33 between Reading town centre and the Mereoak park & ride facility south of the M4 junction 11.

This scheme is included within the Thames Valley Berkshire Local Growth Deal.
East Reading MRT
East Reading Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) is a proposed public transport link between central Reading and the proposed Thames Valley Park park & ride site to the east of the Reading urban area, running parallel to the Great Western mainline. The scheme is being jointly promoted by Reading Borough Council and Wokingham Borough Council and it is included within the Thames Valley Berkshire Local Growth Deal.
