Stagecoach Gold bus route S1 is a bus route in England that links Carterton, Witney, Eynsham and Oxford. The service is run by Stagecoach in Oxfordshire.

History[edit]

Prior to 2009, route S1 was numbered route 100. In 2009 Stagecoach Oxfordshire launched the S-Series, which involved renumbering several high-profile bus routes across Oxfordshire to 'S' services. Subsequently, route 100 was renumbered S1, and its sister route 200 was renumbered S2.

Following the renumbering of the service, Stagecoach upgraded route S1 to Stagecoach Gold status in March 2010, following the success of the new Gold vehicles on route S2.[1]

Route[edit]

The route runs between Carterton and Oxford. In Carterton the service runs in a circle, starting at the Brize Norton roundabout, the service heads directly into Carterton towards the crossroads. The service then leaves Carterton via Carterton Road and Brize Norton heading towards Witney. The service enters Witney via Curbridge and then heads towards Witney Market Square via Burwell Drive, Ducklington Lane and Corn Street (passing Stagecoach's Witney depot). Route S1 leaves Witney via High Street and the B4022 road before entering the A40. The service then serves Eynsham village before heading to Oxford. The service enters Oxford via the B4044 leading onto the Botley Road. From Botley Road, the service heads directly to Oxford City Centre serving Frideswide Square for Oxford station before reaching its terminus at George Street. The total off-peak journey time is approximately 77 minutes.[2]
