  • Oxford Tube - the number of people travelling on Oxford Tube services has dropped significantly since the national government guidance was issued on non-essential travel and the difficult decision has now been taken to suspend the service until further notice.

Oxford Bus Company will also accept Stagecoach tickets on the City2, City3, City3A, City5, City8 and City9 routes. The increased ticketing flexibility will enable customers to travel on the next available bus, rather than waiting for the bus of a specific operator.
