No more Kidlington Blues, with Oxford Bus set to cease running on the frequent 2 group to Kidlington. However, the pre-Covid five minute frequency, now reduced to every 6/7 minutes, will further reduce in the off peak to every 10 minutes. DAVID JENKINS
Oxfordshire County Council is masterminding a rationalisation of routes in the Oxford area, ending joint operation on some, with others changing hands.
The new network will start on January 2, 2022, and sees several routes in the city cease to be jointly operated. Stagecoach will become the sole operator of route 2 buses northwards to Summertown and Kidlington, with Oxford Bus also giving up its route 500 to Woodstock via Oxford Parkway, in favour of Stagecoach route 7.
