Monday 5th March sees the launch of the new look X90 Oxford-London service. Connect with the capital in 100 minutes (depending on traffic). X90 is fast and frequent and takes you direct to London serving Baker Street, Marble Arch and Victoria.

The new X90 offers extra legroom to stretch out, power sockets and free wi-fi to keep you connected on the go. Our coaches are air-conditioned so you travel in comfort whatever the weather, with an on-board toilet provided for your convenience too. Our coaches are wheelchair-friendly, with one space which can be reserved when booking in advance.

New bus stops are also a feature of the new X90 at Baker Street, with better facilities and waiting environment.

Withdrawal of Weekly Paper Based Tickets

From Sunday 12th February 2012, weekly paper based tickets will no longer be available for our local routes. The weekly paper tickets being withdrawn are:

  • South Oxfordshire Zone
  • All Zones
  • Abingdon Route

The withdrawal of these paper tickets will speed up boarding times on buses, enabling our services to run more efficiently and reliably.

You can however still get your weekly pass on the key at www.oxfordkey.co.uk, or our Travel Shop – 3rd floor, Debenhams, Magdalen St, Oxford.

The last day that weekly paper tickets will be accepted for travel on the bus is Friday 17th February 2012.

The South Oxfordshire Zone

From Sunday 11th December 2011, the Abingdon and Didcot zone was renamed and expanded to include many extra services operated by our sister company, Thames Travel. Renamed the South Oxfordshire Zone, the new area opens up a large number of additional services on the same pass, giving you more value and flexibility than ever. Click here for a map of the South Oxfordshire Zone.

What do I need to do?

If you already hold an Abingdon and Didcot or All Zones pass, the new services will become available to you automatically.

What does it cost?

The pricing remains the same as for the existing Abingdon and Didcot zone.
