Science Transit Shuttle launches e-ticketing

The Science Transit Shuttle team has launched electronic ticketing, so users no longer need to buy paper tickets before making a journey.

Science Transit Shuttle BusThe move will make travelling on the regular minibus service more convenient for many people. The Science Transit Shuttle is designed to connect central Oxford and the Science Area to the Headington hospitals, Old Road Campus, Wytham and Harwell Campus, providing a quick and reliable link between these key research sites.

Users can buy electronic tickets from www.sciencetransitshuttle.co.uk using their credit or debit card. Afterwards their e-tickets will be emailed to them with a QR code, which the minibus driver will scan when they travel.

Commuter cards still have to be bought through the University’s online store and collected in person, as before, and paper tickets are still available for users who prefer them. Existing paper tickets will still work, and people using their University Card or a Departmental Pool Card to travel on the shuttle can continue doing so.
