Oxford’s public bus system caters much more to locals than it does to tourists. Save time and money as you explore on a hop-on, hop-off bus with a loop of 20 stops that's perfect for independent travelers. An open-air top deck delivers 360-degree views, while audio commentary is available via headset. Choose between 24- and 48-hour tickets.

What to Expect

Hop on the bus at a stop that suits you—perhaps at Oxford Railway Station—choose between cozy indoor seating or the open-air top deck, don your headset, if required, and explore away.

Depending on whether you’ve purchased 24-hour or 48-hour tickets, you’ll be able to hop on and off at any one of 20 stops, listed under itinerary below, for one or two days. Buses travel at 15–30–minute intervals, depending on the season, so you’ll never have a long wait for pickup.

Stops include Oxford Castle, the Sheldonian Theatre, and University Park, not to mention Christ Church College, a key filming location in the Harry Potter series. Soak up the onboard commentary and historic views as you savor this elegant city, hopping on and off when and where you want.

Retired Policeman with a new knee and Jeremeeeeeeee

We had a fab day today; my Fiance had a poorly foot so hopping on and off the bus saved the day. Our speaking guide on the bus was a retired Policeman who regaled factual stories, anecdotes and jokes with a great sense of humour....More

A rip-off in my view I'm afraid

I'm still embarrassed that I encouraged my friends from overseas to pay £15 each for a bus ride that comprised stopping for too long at most stops, listening to an okay pre-recording (the teenager missed quite a bit of it because the sockets on first...More

E tickets NOT accepted Tripadvisor

It’s quite simple. If you are working with CSHOHO Sync your processes. The bus driver had no means of accepting an e ticket. We had to email to head office and when they had printed off our E ticket we were given our HOHO tickets....More

Good way to see Oxford

We only had three hours in Oxford, not able to walk too far on a hot day this was an excellent way to see the city. Love being able to hop on and off. Good value.
