Science Transit shuttle evolves into public bus with new operator

Science Transit Shuttle Connector bus

The new contract includes two routes – the ST1, running between Oxford and the Harwell Campus, and the ST2 that links Oxford City Centre with Wytham and the JR Hospital, stopping at Seacourt Park & Ride, Oxford rail station and Old Road Campus on the way. See www.thames-travel.co.uk/science-shuttle for more information.

The new services are open to the public, fully accessible, provide double the passenger capacity and will offer a far wider range of ticketing options, including contactless payments and the Key travel card. University cards can no longer be used, though. Tickets are valid across all Thames Travel and Oxford Bus Company services operating in the same zone.  

Thames Travel is investing in a fleet of full-sized ultra-low emission buses to provide the service, further increasing its environmental benefit. The service is part-subsidised by the University and the Science & Technology Facilities Council. The eventual aim is that little or no subsidy will be needed by 2022. If you have any questions, please email travel@admin.ox.ac.uk.
