Yesterday, over 300 children visited Broad Street, Oxford, with their families to meet PAW Patrol characters, Chase and Marshall, to celebrate Oxford Tube’s ‘Kids Go Free’ travel offer.
Oxford Tube, the 24-hour coach service from Oxford to London, gave little ones the chance to meet and have their photograph taken with their favourite TV stars, as well as experience a tour around one its coaches, and even sit in the driver’s seat!
Martin Sutton, Managing Director of Stagecoach in Oxfordshire, said: “Now the school summer holidays have officially begun we wanted to give the children of Oxford an exciting, and free, day out that they could enjoy with their friends and family – and we felt PAW Patrol would certainly put a smile on their faces.
“We hope our ‘Kids Go Free’ any day, any time of the week offer will give more families the opportunity to explore the sights of London and Oxford and create some lovely memories to look back on.”
The ‘Meet Paw Patrol with the Oxford Tube’ free-to-attend event took place on Tuesday 1 August on Broad Street in the city centre from 11am. Paw Patrol characters, Chase and Marshall made appearances throughout the day from 11.30am until 4pm.
Oxford Tube’s ‘Kids Go Free’ any day, any time offer enables two children (up to the age of 15) to travel between Oxford and London for free with one fare-paying adult.
