Bus Update

8 November 2012

Two bus services to continue for Saturday

Following a two game trial the club can confirm that two of the bus services introduced this season will continue to run from Saturday, with the help of Tappins Coaches.

At the start of the season RH Coaches agreed to run coaches from six towns to the Kassam Stadium on matchdays, and to take over the existing service which starts at Kidlington. However, when RH Coaches went into administration the club and Tappins began a trial to see which services were financially viable.

Unfortunately, having looked at the data collected from those games the services from Banbury, Chipping Norton, Wantage, Henley and Thame will not be running from now on.

Business Development Manager Owen Clark said:

“We would have loved to keep all of the services going, but sadly it just doesn’t make sense. When you look at the figures over seven coaches and a whole season the losses would have been substantial.

“However on a more positive note we are very pleased that Tappins have agreed to run the Carterton and Kidlington buses, which were used by more people and we hope will grow in numbers. With Military Personnel able to buy discounted tickets for Saturday’s game and the Carterton bus close to Brize Norton we hope that will be even busier this weekend.”

Fans are reminded that the club entered a new partnership with Oxfordshire liftshare.com this season, which may offer a cheap and easy way to get to and from games.
