Service 250 which ran between Bicester and Oxford through Kirtlington, Bletchingdon and Hampton Poyle ceased on 11th February 2023. Oxfordshire County Council has therefore had to provide a replacement service for these villages which has benefitted Wendlebury and Weston on the Green.
A new bus Service 24 commenced on Monday 13th February linking Bicester to Oxford via Weston on the Green.
The new bus service has now been running for a few weeks and Grayline, in conjunction with Oxfordshire County Council, need to tweak the timetable slightly to better fit within the day and aid punctuality.
As a result, there is a new timetable operational from Monday 3rd April 2023:
The service will be operated by Grayline Coaches with one bus running back and forth throughout the day, the contract is initially for two years.
Bus passes will be valid after 9am on weekdays and all day Saturday.
There is also an official stop near to Knowle Lane.
It being a new service there may be some teething problems, so please report any issues to Graham Barnett, Weston’s Parish Transport Representative, on 350707.
