Railbus service saved

I'm delighted to report that the Railbus service on weekday mornings and evenings will continue.

Oxfordshire County Council had been considering withdrawal as part of the review into subsidised bus services in West Oxfordshire. The service will now continue largely without change. The (very little used) daytime on-demand T1 service will be withdrawn.

The operator, Go Ride, has also taken on numerous other local services in West Oxfordshire.

The X9 service to Witney and Chipping Norton will continue "broadly unchanged", but fewer journeys will go via Ramsden. The little-used extra evening journeys on Friday and Saturday will be removed, but there will be a new 19.05 service from Witney to Charlbury. The operator (currently Stagecoach) has not yet been confirmed.
