Friday 29th April  Royal wedding – Sunday service

Saturday 30th April  Normal Saturday

Sunday 1st May Normal Sunday Service

Monday 2nd May Sunday service

Tuesday 3rd May Back to normal Monday – Friday services


Just a re-cap on what is closed this weekend.

150 service unable to serve Little Brickhill after 1400 on Friday due to RW
Street party. To use normal trunk road instead going to Milton Keynes.
However, normal route coming away from Milton Keynes.

280 service Magdalen Bridge in Oxford will be closed until 0900 on Sunday 1st
May. This will affect only the first bus TO Oxford [701 duty] which will
need to divert via Iffley Road, Donnington Bridge and Abingdon Road and
therefore miss the High Street. However as bus is due there at 0850 road
might be open and certainly should be for return journeys at 0910 from
Rail Station.

 Leighton Buzzard High Street all day on Monday 2nd May – 150 to use
West Street and observe temporary stops along there. High Street may
also become impassable later on Sunday afternoon as stalls for Monday
are set up.

Major changes to bus services 15 May 2011

Following a major review of local bus routes across Buckinghamshire, many services will be changing from 15th May 2011. These changes will mostly affect evening and Sunday services. Please see the pdf at the bottom of this page to check if your bus service is affected.

If your service has ‘Awaiting Confirmed Timetable’ next to it then the final details will appear on this page in the next two weeks. Services detailed as ‘No Change Registered’ will not be changing in May or in the immediate future to our knowledge.

Full timetables for all the affected services will be available on the Bus Timetables pages by 20 April 2011.

Disabled Pass holders & Companions

Friday, April 15th, 2011


Disabled Pass holders & Companions

As you will be aware, some Disabled pass holders have the right to have a companion travel with them free of charge as part of their bus pass conditions.

However, having the companion with them is not compulsory and we have received contact from one council about people being refused travel because they have a Disabled Pass with Companion but don’t have someone travelling with them at that time.

We are not to refuse travel to anyone carrying a valid Disabled pass. If you are suspicious that they should not be entitled to have a companion travel for free, please take their details and ask your Depot Manager to contact the relevant authority.

Thank you

Bus Stop Suspension – Exchange Street

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

High Voltage Cable Diversion – Monday 23 May until Sunday 12 June 2011

Due to work to allow the diversion of a high voltage cable, a section of the footpath and the bus lane in Exchange Street (opposite the theatre) will be closed between 23 May and 12 June.

As it will be difficult for passengers to access any of the three stops, and although the bus lane is only affected for five days of this closure, we will close all three stops for the full period of this closure.  Passengers will be advised to use the stops in the bus station or the high street as appropriate.

Oxford railway station – 14th April 2011

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

Oxford Railway Station (Exterior view)


On Monday 14th April, tree cutting will be carried out at Oxford Rail
Station forecourt.

This will affect the 280 stand and stop for part of the day although
disruption is aimed to be kept to a minimum.

Therefore drivers will need to be extra vigilant and may need at times
to layover and pick up elsewhere within the forecourt so should be
flexible in their time at the Station and allow time for intending
passengers to locate the bus if parked at a place other than the usual
280 stop.
