Thame gets a new bus service from Tuesday as Oxford United introduce a service direct to games at the Kassam Stadium.

The new buses will take supporters to and from every home league game at the U’s and is one of six new services operating across the county including Banbury, Chipping Norton, Carterton, Wantage, and Henley on Thames.

Chris Williams, the club’s Communications manager told The Thame Gazette:“We have a large fanbase in Thame and hopefully the buses will make it easier for everyone to get to games.

“I live in Thame myself and know that catching the 280, changing buses in Oxford and then having to do the same thing on the way home is a pain. Having a direct bus to and from the game will make it much easier.

“We hope fans will give it a go, enjoy the game and see this as a cheap and simple way of getting to football.”

The buses will run for the first time this Tuesday when United welcome Southend to the Kassam Stadium and be available for every home league game.

Buses on the ‘OX6’ route leave from outside the Co-Op at 6.10pm for evening games and 1pm for Saturday matches, making the return journey soon after the final whistle. Adult prices are £7.50 return, with under 16s £4.50 and OAPs and concessions free.
