A Better Bus Service for Blewbury

April 20, 2018

The new Thames Travel 94 bus timetable went into effect on 16 APRIL– and it offers very good news, with more services and more opportunities to get to and from Didcot quickly. There is:

  1. a new morning commuter service
  2. a revised school service, designed to make the journey from Blewbury faster
  3. a better connection with the X32 from Oxford in the middle of the day
  4. and the last three buses to leave Didcot will do a reverse loop and come straight to Blewbury via East Hagbourne, reducing the evening journey time from the station to 19 minutes.

The full timetable is available on the Thames Travel website, at https://www.thames-travel.co.uk/service-changes-april-2018/ That web page explains all the changes and allows you to download your own copy of the complete timetable. Or, for a simpler version, showing only the Blewbury and Didcot Station stops, click here.

We are very lucky not only to be keeping our buses but also having an improved service. Please do use it – 15 minutes to the Orchard Centre and 20 to the station is very good timing … especially when you consider that you don’t need to find/pay for parking! Please also try the Friday morning minibus to Wallingford run by the DVTG – it’s a lovely bus for doing errands or just having a quick break in Wallingford on market day: if you want to use it and haven’t already signed up or need more information, contact dvtgbus@gmail.com, or ring 01235 851763. You can buy your tickets at Blewbury Post Office or Savages.
