High Wycombe Coachway

Jump to: navigation, search

The High Wycombe Coachway is a planned coachway interchange close to junction 4 of the M40 motorway to the west of High Wycombe.[1] Currently some 150 coaches on the Oxford to London coach route pass High Wycombe each day without stopping because it would cause too much delay for other passengers to get into the town centre. The concept is based on the very successful Milton Keynes Coachway next to Junction 14 of the M1 and other coachway interchanges.

Current coach services[edit]

High Wycombe is currently only served by a single coach service, the National Express Coach route 737 Stansted Airport - Hatfield - Luton - Hemel-Hempstead- High Wycombe - Stokenchurch - Thornhill - Oxford[2] which stops in the town centre bus station.
