Most of you will have seen that Stagecoach (Group) have placed a large order for new buses this year. The reports say that Oxford will receive some, but in face it will be 15 vehicles going to Witney depot for their Service S1 into Oxford City Centre.

Of the displaced Witney vehicles, 3 are being transferred to other Stagecoach operations, and 12 will be cascaded to other depots at Stagecoach West. First deliveries are expected in August 2023.

Oxford depot will start receiving their first fully electric double deck buses at the end of 2023 or early 2024, for use on routes solely within the City of Oxford. These vehicles are being ordered with the aid of a large grant awarded to Oxford earlier in the year, and the Oxford Bus Company will also be getting vehicles from this grant.
