Service 250 which currently runs 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.
Timetable for the new bus Service 24
The service will be operated by Grayline Coaches with one coach 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 will also be a £2.00 fixed fare until the end March 2023.
Oxfordshire County Council will be re-marking the road markings for the bus stops and placing a timetable at the stops.
There is also an official stop near to Knowle Lane, a pole and sign will also be erected here.
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.
