Oxford Tube to resume normal service early July

Oxford Tube to resume a full 7 day service from 6 July.

Stagecoach, which manages the Oxford Tube, have announced plans to resume service for the Oxford Tube from early July, in an update posted to the company’s website.

Chris Coleman, Managing Director at Stagecoach in Oxfordshire, said:

“We know the return of the Oxford Tube is highly anticipated for many and we are thrilled to be able to share this date with our customers.”

The popular coach route between London and Oxford has been suspended since the government put in place a stay-at-home order at the beginning of April. It is now expected to resume a full 7 day service with a revised timetable from Monday, July 6th.

The company announced measures intended to comply with current government guidance, and recent legislation, aimed at preventing transmission of the Coronavirus.

“All coaches have a protective screen to provide a physical barrier between the driver and passenger. Face masks are available for drivers… and face shields have been provided to wear if close contact assistance is required.”

The post also reiterated that recently-passed legislation mandates the wearing of face-masks for all passengers on public transport.

The statement went on to outline further measures aimed at staff and public safety, including an “enhanced cleaning regime” at either end of the route.

“Coaches will operate a one-way system, have clearly marked seats and will have some reduced capacity in line with the government guidelines on social distancing.”
