Feedback on planned changes to village bus services

Oxfordshire County Council is seeking feedback from local residents regarding planned changes to the bus services running between the Wychwoods and Burford.

Following the withdrawal in November of Go-Ride buses from their commercial bus service network in the Wychwoods and Burford area,  a short term contract was awarded to Pulhams Coaches to maintain a local service until 30th May 2015. This service provision is now due for review to decide on their future from 1stJune 2015 onwards. In light of the financial pressure that the County Council faces various options have to be considered, which include reductions in the current service levels.

These possible options are as follows:

  1. Maintain the current routes and timetables.
  2. Withdraw journeys before 0900 and between 1500 and 1600.
  3. Withdraw all journeys before 0925 and after 1500.

These options are based on the routes and times of services 213, 214 and 215. There are not currently any plans to make any changes to the V12 and V19 service to Chipping Norton.

Any feedback or ideas for alternative schemes should be provided by 13th February 2015 to:
