Science Transit Shuttle bus service officially launched
- 18 October 2016
The Science Transit Shuttle bus service has been officially launched at an event at Harwell Science and Innovation Campus, following a successful introduction in July of this year.
In addition to brand-new liveried vehicles, the service has evolved in response to customer demand to feature additional stops, flexible ticketing procedures and plans for extensions to the routes.
The shuttle service connects the University of Oxford's science area with Harwell Campus and the Old Road Campus in Headington, enabling research staff, students and visitors to move quickly and conveniently between these centres of cutting-edge scientific and clinical research. The service is available to all staff and students of the University, and the 5,000 people working at Harwell Campus. Once the commercial viability of an express service on these routes has been established, the aim is to open it up to the wider public so that everyone can benefit.
