Most popular questions

Do your coaches take wheelchairs?

Every one of our low floor coaches is able to carry a wheelchair. However, we must stress that we can only carry one open wheelchair per coach. If the coach is full then all customers, including those with a wheelchair, must wait for the next coach

Maximum dimensions/weights for wheelchairs are as follows:

  • Maximum size  - 700mm wide and 1200mm long
  • Maximum weight of the wheelchair and the user - 250Kg

Wheelchair Accessibility at St Clement's inbound stop:

Please note that the coach ramp is incompatible with the width of the pavement at the St Clement's bus stop towards Oxford. As a result, this stop is not suitable for wheelchair users

The alternative options are:

  •  Alight at an alternative stop (Brookes or High Street) -you can change onto a service 8 to get to St Clements
  • Travel to Gloucester Green and a member of staff will arrange onward travel on your behalf to take you back to St Clements

Can I take my mobility scooter?

Mobility scooters can make use of the wheelchair space providing that they comply with the dimensions and weights listed above

Customers wishing to travel in a mobility scooter should be in possession of a mobility scooter permit

These can be obtained by contracting Stagecoach who will arrange for your mobility scooter to be assessed.  Mobility scooters cannot be accommodated in the luggage hold
