Our Bus Bartons

This volunteer-run service normally goes from Middle Barton to The Crescent, Steeple Aston and back via Lower Heyford rail station twice a day, early in the morning and in the evening, they also provide weekly services to Chipping Norton and Bicester.

The service was  suspended due to coronavirus from March until August. Then a new limited service was resumed. For residents of Steeple Aston, that meant the return of the Wednesday service to Chipping Norton and Friday service to Bicester.

But following the announcement of a second lockdown the service was suspended again from Wednesday, 4th November to Wednesday 2nd December.
