Update on changes to bus services

The new bus services coming into operation on 14 December involve improvements to the Witney-Charlbury-Chippy service, which will have late evening services on Fridays and Saturdays and will be operated by RH Transport. The daytime service will run hourly throughout, with a new morning peak journey to Chipping Norton. Worth's have yet to make public any decision on the future of their service 69 which in theory could continue to operate, in full or in part, as a commercial service.

The RH Transport railbus service will continue to operate to and from Charlbury Station in the morning and evening peak rush hour almost exactly as it does now. Between rush hours it will operate by telephone pre-booking, but instead of two journeys as now there will actually be four available. Far from being 'scrapped altogether', as was the fear, the service will provide virtually identical links for commuters to those currently available, with access to Charlbury shops and the station for local residents and people from Leafield and Ramsden.

The Wychwoods can access facilities in Chipping Norton via the revised X8 (meeting a long-standing request) and the Cotswold Line via Kingham Station.

The Charlbury-Oxford Stagecoach service is unchanged and will be operated without subsidy.

More details on these and other changes to local bus services are posted at Full timetables resulting from these changes will not be available until mid November.
