Thursday Bus to Banbury - no longer available

From 2022 - This service has been cancelled. An alternative Community Bus Service is available.

The Helmdon - Banbury bus service is provided jointly by the Parish Councils of Helmdon and Greatworth. It usually runs on the first Thursday of every month. Details are posted on village noticeboards.

There are three pick-ups in Helmdon:

10:20am – Wappenham Road, at the top of Field Way

The bus will stop in Greatworth and then go on to Banbury where it will drop all passengers off at the bus station next to Castle Quay shopping centre. The bus will leave the bus station at 1pm, returning to Helmdon via Greatworth.

The bus is free for all Helmdon residents, passengers do not need a ticket and we will not be asking for donations.

All passengers must wear face masks unless there is a medical reason why they cannot.
