Milton Park, one of the leading science and technology communities in Oxfordshire, has linked up with Thames Travel to provide its new shuttle bus service between Didcot Parkway and the business park.

With the help of additional funding from Oxfordshire County Council, it will provide an increased number of fast bus services from Oxford, including the east of the city and Headington’s Life Sciences District, and Wantage to the park and more areas within Didcot to benefit the Park’s occupiers, its visitors and the local communities.

The new contract will start in January 2021 and will offer Milton Park’s occupiers further travel options with more frequent buses between the train station and the park, longer operating hours to suit new and differing work patterns as a result of Covid-19.

Currently three shuttle buses operate between 7am and 7pm running every 10 minutes at peak times and 15 minutes off peak.
