Oxford Tube Services to be Enhanced From 23rd October 2023

The Oxford Tube services are being enhanced, with big changes being made to ensure that the Oxford Tube remains the number one coach choice for travelling between Oxford and London.

A press release says "The core Oxford Tube service is a roaring success, so much so that we know at weekends in particular demand for the service is very high.

We have identified opportunities to increase our capacity and provide more trips to London without disrupting the core route to improve your experience of travelling with us.

These improvements enable us to retain the renowned Oxford to London service you know and value whilst seeking new ways to make it even better.

The following improvements are being made from 23rd October 2023:

New connections

From 23rd October the introduction of some weekday trips via:


These early morning commuter trips will originate in West Oxfordshire picking up from stops between 
Carterton Crossroads, Witney Market Square and Oxford North 

This new route will then bypass Oxford city centre serving Thornhill only before continuing the normal route to London.

Four outbound journeys will operate in the morning, with three returning journeys later in the afternoon.

High Wycombe

This hourly route will begin in Oxford city centre as usual but will serve High Wycombe coach way after Lewknor and then will travel to Hillingdon and Baker Street into London as per the current express route – providing additional links to Baker Street.

Ten round tips will operate daily, except for weekends.

The core Oxford Tube route and the express trips that run via Baker Street will remain unchanged.

Improved Frequency on Core Services

Service levels will be increased across the board with frequency improved to 8-12 mins on a Saturday (10-15 mins Mon to Fri) and up to 20 minutes into the night.

This will provide more capacity at weekends and during the week, including lates and nights. We truly present a 24/7 service; offering a reliable option for those late-night socialites.

The timetable is still being finalised, it'll be uploaded on the website shortly.

More Coaches

To deliver more services we need more coaches and so this package of improvements will see us introduce more coaches back into the fleet.

All with the same fair pricing – no add on charges, what you see is what you pay

We keep things simple at Oxford Tube. Our coach fares are always the same, whatever time of day or day of the week you travel.

Peak and off-peak charges aren’t applicable here and neither are added costs for bringing luggage."

No surprises, just great value coach travel.
