Clean and modern with well laid out information facilities. Adequate catering facilities . In the process of introducing electric traction. Toilets and waiting areas satisfactorily, but of course cleanliness only really able to be achieved by the way they are treated!

Modern station which is easy to move around and access. Easy access to the towm centre. Change station for lots of routes but not much seating if you have a long wait.

There is virtually nowhere to wait inside, and the wind whips through. There is a tantalizing area of shops and food outside the ticket collection, annoying during a transfer

Was very fond of this station but it has lost a lot since my favourite coffee bar Tutti Frutti closed all of a sudden. Heartbreaking to see the empty space. As an imaginative independent, it made a difference. Now all you've got is the plastic...More

Occasional travellers to Reading station will find the makeover has made a real difference. It feels modern, it’s clean and there are ample facilities for shopping or refreshments. If you’re being collected or dropped by taxi you need to specify “new side” or “old side.”
