A new Courtney Bus will be showcased in Maidenhead Town Centre on Saturday, February 9, to promote the company's recent £1.2m upgrade.
The nine new buses will feature screens and audible alerts to announce the next stop plus extra leg room and CCTV cameras.
The company has revised the timetable to offer a more reliable service for routes 4, 5, 6 and 8, which will be put into action, along with the new buses, on Monday, February 18. This is in response to the increasing rise in passengers and traffic congestion.
Staff will be handing out coupons for family day tickets, costing £5 instead of the usual £8.50. Valid from February 16-23, they allow unlimited travel on Courtney Buses' services for a whole day for two adults and two children or one adult and three children.
Cllr Geoff Hill, cabinet member for highways and transport, said: "We hope residents will take this opportunity to come and visit the bus to not only see how the new fleet will offer greater convenience and comfort but also to get to grips with the changes to the timetable."
