Visiting one of the companies at Thames Valley Park?
Thames Valley Park is located 5 miles from Junction 10 of the M4, or just a short journey from Reading station using our dedicated shuttle bus service.
We encourage visitors to Thames Valley Park to travel sustainably if possible. With excellent rail connections and a FREE shuttle bus from the station to the park it’s not only green but also an easy way to get here.
Travelling to Thames Valley Park by rail couldn’t be easier. Located just a short journey from either Winnersh Triangle or Reading Train Station, our free shuttle buses for staff and visitors run throughout the day travelling to and from the train stations.
TVP offers two free services for employees and visitors to the park. We have an exclusive service that runs between the park and Reading Train Station throughout the day. We also offer a Winnersh Triangle service for employees travelling in commuting hours.
TVP to Reading - Shuttle Service
The shuttle bus service runs from 6.45 am to 7.22 pm, Monday to Friday. Buses run on a loop and leave at six minute intervals during peak times, 15 minute intervals at lunchtimes and 20-30 minute intervals for the rest of the day.
TVP to Winnersh Triangle - Shuttle Service
The shuttle bus service runs during the morning and evening peak times from 7.08 am to 9.38 am, and from 16.30 pm to 19.00 pm, Monday through Friday. Buses run on a loop and leave every 30 minutes.
Whether you’re cycling as part of your commute or just fancy a leisurely lunchtime ride around the park, we’re here to help you get on your bike.
Cycling to work is better for you and the environment – keeping you fit and cutting air pollution and traffic congestion.
Not only is it one of the cheapest ways to get to work, it can also be one of the quickest. For example, Caversham to TVP takes around 15 minutes by bike.
Leasing a Bike
If the benefits of cycling appeal but you’re not ready to commit to a new bike, why not take advantage of one of the loan schemes that operate on site? It’s a great way to see how cycling works for you. It’s also a useful solution for regular cyclists who find themselves temporarily without a bike.
All registered TVP Travel users have access to loan bicycles through the Easit loan bike scheme. We also offer folding bikes for cycle and rail commutes. And for those easing themselves in to cycling we even offer electric bikes to help take the strain! All loan bikes are delivered to your office fully serviced and ready to go. There’s a one-off charge for loan bikes of £35 which covers delivery, collection, servicing and up to a month’s loan.
Oracle employees can also hire bikes through the Oracle Sustainability team: firstname.lastname@example.org
Through Easit, TVP employees can get great discounts with Halfords, Brompton Bike Hire, Beatbikes & Cyclotricity. Sign up to Easit and view ‘your discounts’ for more information.

Electric Vehicle Charging
We have Pod Point Open Charge electric vehicle charging on-site for businesses and their customers.
- There are 4 x 7kW charging bays available.
- Each bay has a Type 2 universal socket.
- It costs £1.15 per hour to charge.
Before using the Pod Point twin, you need to download the app for iOS/Android phones or use the web app at: open.pod-point.com
Starting a charge is as simple as plugging in the car. Charging is indicated by the LEDs turning GREEN. When a vehicle is connected to the Pod Point Twin, the Type 2 socket at the pod will lock the cable into the pod. The vehicle side connector must be disconnected before the cable can be released from the Pod Point.
After the car starts charging you’ve got 15 minutes to find the charger on the app and confirm charging. When battery is full or charging has paused/ stopped for any reason, the green light will flash.
In the unlikely event that the lights go red, it means something’s gone wrong. No need to panic, just get in touch with Pod Point and they will get it sorted. Please count the red flashes, as this indicates the nature of the fault.
TVP Travel has its own dedicated car share scheme. Employees from around the park can join for free and find someone who works in the park to share with. It’s a great way to promote sustainable transport as well as cutting travel costs – commuters typically save around £1,000 a year from car sharing!

Thames Valley Business park is connected to Reading Railway station by the Thames Path.
Following the course of the River Thames, this is a lovely leisurely walk, taking 40 minutes on average. We’re very lucky to have the Thames Valley Nature Reserve on our doorstep. Why not also take a stroll during your lunch break to get some fresh air, unwind and burn a few extra calories before returning to the office?
