From Sunday 3rd January 2021, your cityX3/X13/13 services changed.
The previous cityX13 service, providing the through service between Abingdon, Oxford City Centre, Marston, Northway and JR Hospital was replaced by higher frequency coordinated cityX3/13 and Thames Travel X2 services.
Between Oxford City Centre and Abingdon, cityX3 and Thames Travel X2 services coordinate to provide buses every 10 minutes on Monday to Saturday daytimes and every 15 minutes during the evenings and on Sundays. The X2 extends to Oxford Rail Station, restoring the link between Abingdon, Abingdon Road and Oxford Rail Station. The service operates every 20 minutes on Monday to Saturday daytimes and every 30 minutes during the evenings and on Sundays.
Meanwhile, the re-routed and renumbered cityX3 service is also extended beyond Oxford City Centre, to JR Hospital, replacing the cityX13 and maintaining the direct service between Abingdon and JR Hospital throughout the day, 7 days a week.
Between Oxford City Centre and JR Hospital, the cityX3 and city13 services coordinate to provide buses every 10 minutes on Monday to Saturday daytimes. The cityX3 operates direct to JR Hospital via Headley Way, while the city13 runs via Northway.
With financial support from Oxfordshire County Council, the revised cityX3 service is also extended to the new Barton Park development across the Northern By-pass, terminating in Barton at Underhill Circus. The subsidised service provides much of Barton and all of the new development with a 20-minute frequency route to JR Hospital, Marston, Oxford City Centre and Abingdon on Monday to Saturday daytimes and a 30-minute frequency during the evenings and on Sundays.
