There is a comprehensive network of bus routes that serve destinations in and around the Royal Borough. This includes a dedicated shuttle bus between Windsor and Legoland.
Most bus companies offer day tickets that are valid across their network, as well as discounted tickets for group travel.
Taxis & Private Hire Vehicles

The Royal Borough Cycle Map and Guide shows quiet roads that are suitable for cycling as well as dedicated cycle routes. It also shows locations of local bike shops and town centre cycle parking. Copies of the leaflet are available from the Royal Windsor Information Centre.
Windsor Great Park is an ideal location to explore by bike. Motor vehicles are restricted, so visitors will often enjoy traffic-free roads. Cyclists must keep to permitted roads and paths, and off-road cycling is not permitted. A guide to cycling in the Park can be downloaded from The Royal Landscape website.
