Getting around

Bus & tram


If sightseeing has worn you out buses 1 and 5 go to Cowley Rd from Carfax, 2 and 7 go along Banbury Rd from Magdalen St, and 16 and 35 run along Abingdon Rd from St Aldate’s.

A multi-operator Plus Pass (per day/week/month £5/16/44) allows unlimited travel on Oxford’s bus system.
