The X90 Oxford - London Coach Service Withdrawl

The X90 route will be withdrawn from service on 4th January 2020. This unfortunate decision is a result of falling passenger numbers and worsening congestion making the service unviable.

Season tickets and 12-trip passes will continue to be valid up until the service stops operating. After this date any unused tickets will be eligible for a pro-rata refund and an on-line form will be set up to facilitate this process. Further information will be made available on 2 January 2020: https://x90.oxfordbus.co.uk/
