Stagecoach West has announced improvements to its Oxford Tube coach service, including the addition of new connections from Carterton, Witney, Eynsham and High Wycombe.
In a package of service enhancements starting from Monday 23rd October 2023 passengers will be able to board the Oxford Tube service to London from a choice of four morning weekday departures from Carterton, Witney and Eynsham in West Oxfordshire. The route will bypass Oxford city centre, stopping at Thornhill then heading on towards the Capital.
In a new departure for the coach operator, residents in High Wycombe will also be able to take advantage of the Oxford Tube service hourly, weekdays, boarding at High Wycombe Coachway, before travelling to Hillingdon and continuing the journey via Baker Street to London Victoria. Located next to junction 4 of the M40, High Wycombe park and ride offers a convenient starting point for a swift journey into London.
The new stop locations are a great addition to an already popular and valued service, retaining the renowned Oxford to London route fundamental to its success. The core service will see additional benefits with frequency increased across the board; operating up to 8 to 12 minutes on a Saturday (10 to 15 minutes Monday to Friday) and up to 20 minutes into the night.
Rachel Geliamassi, Managing Director at Stagecoach West, said: ‘We’re delighted to be expanding the reach of our ever-popular Oxford Tube service to West Oxfordshire and High Wycombe, meaning even more passengers can travel into London easily, comfortably, sustainably and at a great price. Air con, super comfy seats, tables and charging points make our Oxford Tube an incredibly attractive option when travelling into London.
High Wycombe is a brand-new catchment area for us so we look forward to welcoming some new faces on board, whilst our new stops in West Oxfordshire make daily commutes simpler for those currently having to make their way into the centre of Oxford to pick up the service. They can now start their journeys much closer to home.‘
These improvements, made possible by the introduction of additional coaches into the fleet, provide more capacity at all times of the day and night – a reliable service for all 24 / 7.
The Oxford Tube’s fair pricing and simple ticket offering remains unchanged; customers can continue to enjoy great value coach travel to London, more often.
