Third ‘Football Special’ for Oxford fans from Thames Travel

Thames Travel is launching a third match-day bus service, for Oxford United fans to get from Didcot to Kassam Stadium.

The OX2 football service will run from via Great Western Park, Steventon and Abingdon and return after the match.

To launch the service, Thames Travel is offering free travel for the opening home game of the season: Oxford vs Peterborough on 10 August.

The OX2 will run for all weekend and bank holiday league matchdays this season. It is the first time a dedicated bus service has been provided to connect Didcot and Abingdon to the Kassam Stadium.

Thames Travel runs two other Football Specials: The OX3 and OX7, bringing fans to home games from Carterton, Brize Norton, Witney, Eynsham, Botley, Kidlington, the Banbury Road, Summertown, Marston and Headington.

Phil Southall, Managing Director of Thames Travel, says: “As partners of Oxford United we are pleased to be able to expand our league match-day Football Special service to help more supporters attend matches and support their local club.

“Since we stepped in to help the club with match-day bus services the relationship has developed and we’re looking forward to the new season.”
