Looking for a room/someone to go into a flat with @oxford BrookesWatch
I live in Abingdon and although I can't give you the place itself, I would recommend looking at living in Abingdon - it will probably be MUCH cheaper and you can get the bus for about £10 - 15 a week. Although getting back home late in the evenings might be struggle, I don't know how late the buses run. I realise this is late! Good luck
The buses run late into the evening - even on Sundays. Rush hour is congested but at other times, the journey times are good.
A yearly pass is £605 with unlimited travel and if you cash in the card the Oxford Bus Company will refund pro rata. If you have the cash upfront, this is very economical. You can also buy weekly or monthly passes but the cost rises quite sharply as the time period contracts. Alternatively, if you are fit and like cycling, the route via Radley is reasonable BUT the cost saving on cycling half the year and taking the bus the other half (when its cold, wet & dark) is relatively small with a yearly pass (and zero if you factor in cycling maintenance) so bus is the dominant option.
