Oxford has had Park&Ride since 1973 when the Redbridge site opened. Let’s remember why the concept was created back then. There were controversial proposals to build a road across Christchurch Meadow to resolve the City’s congestion problems and it was accepted that a ‘better way’ of managing transport demand had to be found.
On this edition of The Business Brunch, we are joined by guests Hayley Beer-Gamage, Chief Executive of Experience Oxfordshire, Dave Harrison, Senior Public Transport Planner from Oxfordshire County Council, Phil Southall, Managing Director of Oxford Bus Company and Andy Morison Head of Customer Experience at Oxford Bus Company as they talk about how public transport has been affected, how it’s had to adapt to a pandemic world and what we need to do to attract the local and wider population back to Oxford.
