The Parish Council are negotiating with Pulhams as to why the 64 bus is not stopping in Filkins currently.

We have been told that they are not aware that they can come off A361 and drive through the village and re join – although 2 buses a day which serve Burford School already do this.

We are doing everything we can to get this reinstated as soon as possible.

The Villager bus service will continue to run on Wednesday – timings as below


Outbound (timings approximate) Return (timings approximate)

Filkins 9.40

Carterton 9.55

Arrive Witney 10.15

Witney 12.05

Carterton 12.25

The Parish Council hope to have the 64 service restored as soon as possible
