Service Changes from 26th November 2023
1 month ago
We will be making some changes to services in Oxford City and South Oxfordshire from 26th November to improve reliability, as well as introducing new connections funded by Oxfordshire County Council.
We will be making minor timetable adjustments to improve punctuality and the new timetable, effective 26th November, is available here.
Oxford Bus Company 45
Service 45 will be operated by Oxford Bus Company from 26th November 2023. There will be no change to the timetable currently operated by Thames Travel, and you can find this here.
As congestion along the Abingdon Road has increased, we need to revise the timetable of city46 to improve the reliability of the service. As part of this, the current daily timetable will be replaced by a separate set of times for weekdays and weekends to best match the journey times on these days. Click here to view the new timetable, effective 26th November.
We have worked with Oxfordshire County Council to introduce a new weekend service on the city700 from 26th November. Operating up to every hour on Saturdays and Sundays, this extends the direct link from Kidlington and Thornhill to Headington and the Hospitals to 7 days a week. There will also be minor changes during the week to improve reliability, especially during peak times.
You can view the new timetable here.
Now that we have greater clarity regarding the closure of Botley Road, we need to make some amendments to the timetable to improve reliability in the face of increased levels of congestion along the Abingdon Road. You can find the new times from 26th November here.
We have slightly retimed the departures on the western section of service 400 from Harcourt Hill to make the walking time connections at Oxford Rail Station better for passengers. There are no changes to the eastern section of the route between Oxford Rail Station and Wheatley.

Oxford Bus Company 108
We will commence operation of a new 108 service in partnership with Oxfordshire County Council, connecting Forest Hill, Stanton St John, Horton-cum-Studley, Beckley, Piddington and Langford with Bicester and Oxford City Centre. You can view a map for the new service here, and the timetable here.
Thames Travel 94 & 94A
A new route and timetable will replace the existing 94 service, in partnership with Oxfordshire County Council.
Service 94 will operate in both directions between Didcot, East Hagbourne, Blewbury and Upton, with peak journeys to and from Harwell Campus. New service 94A will operate a one-way loop from Didcot serving The Hagbournes, Upton, Blewbury, Aston Upthorpe and The Moretons before returning to Didcot.
Service 94 will no longer serve Chilton, however customers can still use connector X34 to and from Didcot.
Since we began operating this service in August, we have identified the need to retime the service throughout the day to be more punctual, particularly at peak times. There is no change to the overall level of service, and you can click here to view the new timetable from 26th November 2023.
Our sister business, Pulhams Coaches, will commence operation of new service 64 in partnership with Oxfordshire County Council, between Witney and Swindon via Carterton, Lechlade and Highworth. Click here for a route map for service 64 and here for the timetable.
