   New Bus Service    25 September, 2020


I am delighted that after many months of campaigning on behalf of local residents, from 1 September 2020, Thames Travel service 45 between Abingdon and Culham was extended to serve Berinsfield, Nuneham Courtenay, Oxford Science Park and Cowley thanks to funding from the Government’s Supported Bus Services Fund (SBSF) and Section 106 planning agreement funds from Culham Science Centre. 


The service operates broadly every two hours on Mondays to Fridays, offering peak and off-peak connections to town and district centres and major employment parks. The service part-replaces the former T2 bus service and has been much-requested by Berinsfield residents since the previous service was withdrawn. 


The service has been procured on an initial two-year contract and it is hoped that it will be sufficiently successful to be extended beyond this period. I do hope residents will use the 45, because as with so many things nowadays, it’s use it, or lose it.  A copy of the timetable is available at https://www.thames-travel.co.uk/routes/45
