Parking Information

Park & Ride

Oxford’s Park and Ride service (operated by the Oxford Bus Company) enables visitors to leave their cars at locations close to the ring-road and travel into the city centre on a frequent bus service.

For a location map of the five car parks in Oxford and routes, please visit the Park & Ride website.

Note: For those not familiar with the changes (implemented in June 1999) to the Oxford transport system, we would recommend viewing the details here before making any journey into Oxford.
